You must be running > 2.0.0 for this,
get the samba source.
what you need is samba-x.x.x/source/script/mksmbpasswd.sh
(seing as this is large I have attached just the mksmbpasswd.sh file from 2.0.6)
Assuming you have installed in /usr/local/samba
getent passwd | /path/to/samba/src/samba-x.x.x/source/script/mksmbpasswd.sh > /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd
chmod -R go= private
encrypt passwords = no
update encrypted = yes
After you have gathered all of your smbpasswords
encrypt passwords = yes
And then go and turn off send unecrypted passwords on all you 9x /NT boxes.
You will probably want also to do some sort of password syncing from UNIX -> Samba and Samba -> Unix
but I haven't got that far yet ;-)
