Emmm I had serious problems with samba of the 7.3 release (yep we got
Win32 environment, no comment) and I decided not to migrate from the
former release.
When 8.0 came out I did the migration.
I was always curious about non-Intel HW, I have DEC Alpha servers and
workstation, Sun SparcStation workstation and now that RS/6000 server. I
tried SuSE 7.1 AXP, 7.3 PPC, 7.3 Sparc.
Alack, most of these HW platforms are dying as CISC begins to win the
battle against RISC.
Sorry to be off topic.
