Description Matt Perry 2002-08-25 22:53:31 EDT
The screen for adding SMB Authentication during the install process only 
prompts for one SMB server to handle the authentication.  The pam_smb module 
supports having a primary and a secondary.  One can enter the secondary SMB 
server in the installer by separating the primary and secondary with a comma 
when entering the SMB server.  However, this is not documented in the help text 
on the left side of the screen.

At best, the panel should prompt for both the primary and secondary SMB server 
and state that the secondary server is optional.  All but the smallest networks 
will have at least two servers for handling authentication.  At worst, the help 
text should mention that the user can use a comma to separate the primary and 
secondary SMB server.
