comment How do I allow all members of a domain to login remotely to a Windows XP Machine?
In a typical Active Directory domain you would push these settings via group policy. Not sure if Samba has that capability though.

comment What tool do you use to monitor your servers?
SCOM is great monitoring platform for Windows based Enterprise environments. The real genius here is the Management Packs released by the Microsoft product groups themselves (this is part of the MS Common Engineering Criteria that every product have a SCOM MP within 90 days of RTM). Getting advice and knowledge from the product teams themselves can greatly improve the ability of an operations department to keep things running and healthy without bothering the more senior admins for every little thing.

comment Why on EARTH is my windows 2003 Altiris server rebooting itself, once a day?
Good luck finding the cause. It certainly look like one of the services running at the Altiris Service Account is doing this (evidence in the event log message you quoted)
