I was mucking around at home and approached this from the
opposite direction.... I set up 'yellow pages' so that other
Linux boxes could use a central user/password server and then
configured Samba to refer to that.

Depending on you level of commitment to using M$ as the system
authenticator, you might be able to do it this way round.

Haven't tried it with M$ in charge....
