Thanks - Chameleon was a very good product - a bit ahead of its time - I
I remember those days well -- The company I work for loves SFU, but it
has so many issues I don't know where to start. The only two pieces it
needs is RSH (which I found and it works great) and of course "mount" to
mount two unix shares - I've done samba (Including building a lovely AD)
in a lot of environments, but not on SCO - and in this case I can't add
anything to the SCO environment without months of regression testing to
our application (and by that I mean anything necessary to build the
binaries) - ugh.. I found several "for cost" clients that seem to do
what I want - but I was hoping that some one, some where had developed a
nice client that, well, was free :-) They certainly give the "Sever"
side away for free - lol.
