samba as a windows domain controler


ok, just before i waste my time trying i thought i;d ask if its passable first.

is it passable to make samba work as a windows domain controller?

the domain controller only needs to do two things.
authorization (username/passwords)
map network locations.

the main thing is for the authorization, i;m not to bothered about mapping network locations as i can just do this manually on each machine anyway.

I'm just looking for a yes or no answer, but tips would come in usfull.
