Add talks you are prepared to give. Follow the format of:

“SAMBA to do the job of a domain controller. I seem to remember you used to be able to use SAMBA as NT4 domain controller. Wondering if something better is possible nowadays”– Mark

“A simple read of the SAMBA HOWTO Collection will reveal that SAMBA-3 is still only an NT4 Domain Controller. SAMBA-4 is in alpha release and will do Active Directory (200x) Domain Control. The HOWTO is rather good. With practice, you can get a SAMBA based NT4 domain going with PDCs and BDCs, Windows Clients and Domain Member Servers just by following the HOWTO and the SAMBA-3 By Example text.” – Casso
