Preferably all of them. But at the moment I'm working on 2k and XP. 

But I also have a 98 that I would like to connect to this...

I skimmed through them (if you're refering to the 'W2k Kerberos Auth'
and 'W2k Kerberos Interoperability'), but one of them didn't give much
'hands-on' on how to get it to work and the other only dealt with
the other way around (ie, non-win to win).

I guess this is also valid for XP etc... ?

Any GOOD HOWTO's on this? The M$ ones didn't "do it for me" so to speak :)

I see. I had a look at the NISGINA a year or so back (never got it
working though) and I 'expected' that there would be a 'KRBGINA'
for this to work...
