Not at all - thanks for that (sounds like my credit card is in for another beating!).

If you're doing Server 2K8 look here first:

Windows Server 2008 Step-by-Step Guides

Might provide everything needed without your having to purchase anything.

Not necessarily. Look here first for Samba info:

Also note, the O'Reilly Using Samba 2nd ed. book is available online at no charge. 3rd ed. should be up soon.

How many Linux distros are there? :huh:

The quasi-official number is somewhere around 359. 8)

However, recent scientific research now puts the number of Linux distros at 1.5 times the number of actual Linux users. ;)
