[nmglug] LINUX as domain master?

We have a new linux file-server at work, and I will be
providing file service for Windows.

I'm fairly naive about doing this.
I think that when I have used a WORKGROUP,
everybody could alter every body else's files
in the common area.

Can/should I set up LINUX as a Domain master
(and WINS provider?)
Any recommended reading (or recipes) for configuring
samba to do this?

It might be nice for LINUX users to have
samba users synched with UNIX accounts.
They may want both samba and NFS shares.
(They will need UID/GID for NFS)
