Hi everybody. I've never posted anything on the Ubuntu forums since most of the time I've found the answers to my problems either here or googling, but today I hitting my head to the wall with this problem.

I need to set up a print server with printing quotas capabilities and user authentication through already existing Active Directory Win 2k3 server with over 800 clients.

I know that PyKota is capable of doing this and I did purchased the download, but I'm having quite a hard time to set it up. I've already followed at least 5 different howtos but so far I haven't succeeded.

If anybody could help me on to pointing me to the right direction on how to proceed I'll be really grateful.

Once I manage to get this all up and running I intend to code some sort of script that manages all the installation automatically and I'll release it (if I ever get it to work).

I've already tried to install it using Ubuntu server 8.04 and 9.10. I'm trying to get it to work with 9.10 right now.

Thanks in advance.
Marc
