Default Network login into Windows network (Active Directory)
It would be great to be able to log into the Windows network at work so that I can use the network printers, etc. It would also go a long way in helping me get the IT Department's attention/interest in looking at PCBSD!

I know this may be a tough request...I only know of 2 Linux distros that have this option preconfigured: SUSE and Xandros. I think Xandros uses winbind; but I think SUSE uses a different method.

Winbind is pre-installed, so if you want to login on FreeBSD clients direct to the Windows network you can, requires a bit of setting up though.

You need to edit /etc/nss-witch.conf and /etc/pam.d/, if type man winbindd from the console there's an example to how to do it.
