Has anybody got RH5.2 to work with Samba 2.0.2 "unix password sync" option ?

I have never been able to get this to work and I'm becoming convinced that
I'm doing something horredously stupid, so any suggestions or solutions
would be much appreciated.

I always seem to get errors like:

passwd chat = "New*UNIX*password:*" %n\n "*Retype*" %n\n "*updated

[1999/02/12 20:38:26, 100] smbd/chgpasswd.c:talktochild(264)
  talktochild: chatbuf=[New*UNIX*password:* nt domnow
   *Retype* nt domnow
   *updated] responsebuf=[New UNIX password: ]

  response 1 incorrect
