Fwd: Recommendations for Mixing Windows and non-Windows Domains?

I hope the duplication does not offend anyone.  I just posted the  
following on the kerberos@mit.edu list, but I suspect that many of  
you may not actively follow that list.

I would appreciate any data or recommendations you can provide, but  
please either respond on that list or directly to me.
