It seems that my current ideal setup looks like the following:

WINDOWS:	Windows 2000 ActiveDirectory domain containing users and
UNIX:		PAM_NTDOM to allow Unix systems to authenticate against
an NT Domain.
SAMBA:	SAMBA possibly using XFS, which supports ACLs

Suddenly, it seems so simple.  At least for testing.  It'll still take a
great deal of testing and running in yet :-)

I'll keep the list posted as to my progress, because I'm still a little
nervous about taking this venture ;)
