policy editor questions...

Hello, all....

Trying to set up a small LAN, one server running Linux and SMB/Samba acting
as a NT Server to authenticate passwords and provide a couple directorys for
network access.

What I want to do is use the Policy Editor to create policies for the
Windows 95 and 98 computers on the network, to lock down access to the
control panel and such.

I have sarched the web and I can't find any real documentation on this
situation... plenty on hooking up Netware and 9x, plenty on setting up NT
and 9x policys, but nothing that helps me... perhaps you could help?

I understand the basic usage of the polcy editor.  Here are my questions...

Is there a policy that belongs on the Server, even though it's not a NT
server?  The only things windows related that happens on the server is that
the user's profiles, settings, etc. land in a directory in thier home
directory called 'Profile' on the server.  Or do I just create a policy on
each computer on the network and save it locally?

Where are policys saved on Windows machines?  What should the files be
named?

Really, all I want to do is remove access to the desktop if you don't log on
to the server.  I don't want people to be able to hit cancel to the NT
(linux) logon screen and get to the desktop on certain machines with
critical information on them.

Any assistance or pointers appreciated...

  Andrew,
                 In setting up your samba server you should have cerated a
share called netlogon. With a  directory of the same name on the server. In
this directory goes a file called config.pol. This file is created by poledit
and copied to the netlogon directory on the server. Make such you create a
user,
(for example admin) so you can logon with full access.

  You might try the  "linux.samba" newsgroup.

In the Netlogon share you can put one (ore more) config.pol file(s).
With a batch-file it should be possible to invoke the right file for
specific users or machines.

(If username=blabla then call blabla, etc)

Next URL is a nice one for examples of various scripts, and great for ideas!
