    Network Migrating Win98->XP: Samba as a PDC?

    I maintain a small office network (3 windows PCs & linux fileserver) which, with the withdrawal of support for W98, has finally been forced to upgrade the windows boxes to XP. I'm wondering whether to use Samba as a PDC or just stick with a simple workgroup. My knowledge of networking is pretty basic and some advice on the pros and cons might help to minimise disruption while I experiment with the alternatives. Any samba users out there?

    I used samba for about 6 months on my network and it was pretty easy to set up with FC5's GUI's(go easy I was a noob). Never had any problems and a workgroup worked just fine for me.
