   It isn't possible (right now) with samba... but I've developed sometime
ago a PAM module (for linux only) that authenticates any user using
his/her netware account (login+password). It's pretty simple and hasn't
much features but works very well. I'd be glad on sending it to you as
soon as I finish the documentation
   The only problem here is that you have to use unnencrypted passwords to
share the unix/samba user database and it can be a trouble to NT clients.

					Hope This Helps
