Accessing a samba domain from a win98 machine.

To the best of my knowledge, that requires trust relationships in the domain
model.  The samba domain needs to 'trust' the win98 machine domain in order
for the free exchange of information with restriction.

The simplest way would be to have the user log off their native domain and
log on to the samba domain.

If I am eating my foot, would someone on the list enlighten me?

Apologies in advance if this is a stupid question but I've recently run
into the scenario where some win98 machines on another domain need to be
able to access some stuff on my samba (2.1) domain. Unfortunately I cannot
figure out how to make this work.. I tried using the domain user map but
it seemed to have no effect.

Any clues?
