Default NIS in a multi-system universe?

Hello,

I just bought an Everex desktop with gOS(googled-up ubuntu) and I already have some windoze boxes and laptops (2k home and vista home) and I'm trying to get an upgraded older system running to put FreeBSD 7... so I'm getting a bit of a collection and with a wife and five kids, I'd like to have all of login stuff centralized. I assume this means NIS, but if I run NIS from the FreeBSD box, are there clients for the windoze systems? I'm assuming gOS will play nicely, like any *nix system, but the Windows boxes have me concerned.

(while I'm wishing for things, I'd like a pony, children that don't bicker and all of the machine's "home" directories to point to an SAMBA mounted drive)

Thanks

JimB
