The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, May 13.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Samba 3

   Samba is a suite of programs that seamlessly provide SMB/CIFS
   file-and-print services to Windows clients. A robust and reliable
   implementation, it is now at version 2.2.8. What's in store for the
   future? In development now, and available for download for testing is
   version 3.0alpha.

   This version has many enhancements to the 2.x versions, including
   Active Directory support (this release is able to join a ADS realm as
   a member server and authenticate users using LDAP/Kerberos), Unicode
   support, better Windows 2000 printing support including publishing
   printer attributes in Active Directory, support for migrating from a
   Windows NT 4.0 domain, support for establishing trust relationships
   with Windows NT 4.0 domain controllers, and lots of other changes!

   Kevin McGregor will show you how to get started in testing this
   leading-edge technology.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our new meeting location: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice
   Ave. (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
   sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
   (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15
   PM, so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30 PM. Don't be late, or
   you may not get in.

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, or in a lot
   across Ellice from IBM, for $1.00 for the evening. Indoor parking is
   also available nearby, at Portage Place, for $2.00 for the evening.

Also note that MUUG maintains two mailing lists, called "muug-announce"
and "roundtable".  If you're not already on these lists, we encourage you
to subscribe now:


The "muug-announce" list is used for monthly meeting announcements (such
as this one) as well as other important announcements of interest to MUUG

The "rountable" list is meant to be a forum for follow-ups to topics
discussed at the meetings, or for round-table-style discussion on other
topics that come up between meetings.  Of course, for this to be effective,
we need to reach a certain critical mass.  So, please subscribe, and stay
