I think that a FreeBSD list such as freebsd-questions or freebsd-ports
would be more appropriate for sending this question :-)

How did you installed Samba on your FreeBSD box? I ask you about
this because there is a problem with Samba 2.0.x and FreeBSD's PAM
(pluggable authentication modules). This problem is solved with a
small patch for the Samba source, but this patch is automatically
applied if you install Samba from the wonderful FreeBSD's ports
collection (/usr/ports/net/samba).

If you don't want to install the Samba port, then you could
apply the patch yourself: /usr/ports/net/samba/patches/patch-ad.

Hoping this helps,
