NT domain authentication

Hi there,

I configured samba to authenticate to an NT server (our PDC) and it woks
fine. Now, I want to authenticate users on another linux box (where the
proxy squid is running) using the same passwords. 
Therfore I need a small program running under linux which validates a
given user/password combination against the NT PDC. Is there an extract
from the samba code which does exactly this?
Another solution would be samba syncing the domain passwords to a unix
like passwd or shadow file which I can use for my authentication. I
found no way to realize this with samba 2.0.3.

Does anybody know a solution or a helping link?
