Thanks to Andy and Jon and others.
The early testing of this system seems to indicate that the best and
easiest setup is to have the directories on the Linux system, share them
using Samba and then have NT map a drive to them when logging in. As long
as the user exists in both systems they can then get into their own
directory and nobody else's. If the user doesn't exist in Linux then the
share doesn't even map.
means two user lists to manage (but only one password list), but we do this
already for AUC and the same data list can be run through scripts on NT and
Linux to automate the whole process.
