  Thanks for your help. I am one step closer. The linux/samba box will allow
me to see the shares if I logged onto the NT domain.  Two steps were
vital... The creation of the entry in the NT domain controller for the linux
box AND logging on to the domain, not onto my system as a local
administrator. This now sounds obvious, however the steps can be trickey.
  One problem remains.. the ability to write to the shares.

  here is a snip from smb.conf
          path = /public
          read only = No
          guest ok = Yes

  What I want to do is to allow all domain users the ability to read/write
the public share.
  I have set up the directory as follows...

  [root at auxfs /]# dir -l
  drwxr-xr-x   2 root     root         2048 Oct 15 15:29 bin
  drwxr-xr-x   3 root     root         1024 Oct 15 15:35 boot
  drwxrwxr-x   2 root     root         1024 Nov  9 19:33 public

  The intent is to build a directory structure under public for projects,
shared software archives, and other public directories.

  Regardless of how I log on through smb I cannot seem to access public for

    well you have to create a machine account for your Samba
    server on your PDC first.

    You have to use the Server Manager Tool on the PDC
    and setup an account as a server (not domain controller)
    with the netbios name of your samba server.
    Only after that the "smbpassword -j" is successful in
    creating a trusted account.
