26 As far as I know, don't take my word for it, in order to use Active
27 Directory on a GNU/Linux host, you need to setup LDAP and have it talk
28 to AD. Unfortunately I don't know how to do this, perhaps this will
29 help: .
31 As far as non-English filenames appearing with question marks, you
32 need to setup localization correctly. This
33 or this
34 might help you get that setup.
35 Once again, I've never done this, so maybe someone who has can be of
36 more help to you.
