simple config request: samba PDC w/ NT4SP3 clients

I am a bit confused as to the right way to configure the current tree to
support what I want to do.
1) Use NIS+ database for user authentication
2) Map a directory upon logon.
My environment is such that I do not have control of the nis+ server to go
changing passwords via samba. I have read ENCRYPTION.txt and understand
that both auth schemes are one way and so cannot be used to auth each
other. This indicates to me that I need to set "encrypt passwords = no"
to use the nis+ database.
Unfortunately, when I set "encrypt passwords = no", nt4sp3 systems cannot
join the domain. If I set "encrypt passwords = yes" then the machine can
join but I am back into the divergent auth problem.
I am assuming that I need to run samba as PDC (there are no domains here)
to get a client to run a logon script to mount their home directory.
Is there any way around this problem?
