1. NT WS user != NT Domian user even if the name is the same. Why you deny
    to SAMBA?

2. If NT domain has trusted domains and any user from these domains tries to
   he will be accepted by PDC. And if his name happens to exist in Unix, he
will be
   given _this_unix_user_rights_ Even if you can control local domains, you
   cannot control remote. I don't expect remote admin to consult me before
   new user. And just hope, that he will never select "root" ...

Sure. I have spoken about the case when Unix account exist.

I understand your point - please, understand mine. I don't say "do it this
way only" - I ask for a possibility to do it both ways if needed.
