As the docs say, to do "unix password sync" the passwords have to be sent
in clear text, which NT4 with SP3 or higher WILL NOT DO, without a
registry hack to allow plain text password sending.   Check to see if your
machines can send the password in clear text before attempting unix
passwd sync.  Easiest way is to say "encrypt passwords = no" in the
smb.conf file.
