[root at mymachine local]12$ /etc/local/smbpasswd -h
Usage is : /etc/local/smbpasswd [-D DEBUGLEVEL] [-a] [-d] [-m] [-n]
[username] [password]
/etc/local/smbpasswd: [-R <name resolve order>] [-D DEBUGLEVEL] [-r
machine] [username] [password]
/etc/local/smbpasswd: [-h]

Ummm...Again I'm confused.  Either way though.  Both BRANCH_NTDOM and
the main branch will support  'smbpasswd -a -m MACHINE' to add a machine
account to smbpasswd file.
