Hmm - I don't know if Samba can do what I *think* he means. Allow me to
expand. I'm thinking he means as in Active Directory. A Domain.

It's no use guessing at what he means. What he *says* is a PDC in place of a NT server. Samba can do that. Active Directory is just that, a directory service, not a domain controller. A Samba PDC can't host Active Directory, but neither can NT.

I first did a fast search of the ports - See below:

racerx# make search key="active dir" | more
Port:   adtool-1.2
Path:   /usr/ports/sysutils/adtool
Info:   Active Directory administration tool
Index:  sysutils
B-deps: expat-1.95.6_1 gettext-0.12.1 gmake-3.80_1 libiconv-1.9.1_3
R-deps: openldap-client-2.1.26

I believe hat's a tool to permit access (via LDAP) to an Active Directory registry existing on a W2K/XP machine.
