Integrating Ubuntu with a Windows-based network is harder than it should be

Are you a real professional doing this for some company rather than yourself? If so then I really don't
get the whining about the howto's. I've had to seek out and apply howto's to deal with brain damaged
things that Outlook likes to do. If you are an IT person, you are basically paid to be willing to read the
manuals.

Admittedly, Unix doesn't proceed from an intruder friendly "lets bare our knickers to the world" sort
of security model. So "browsing" NFS shares might not make as much sense as doing the same
with CIFS.
