Security = domain and different NT and Unix account names.. ..

I tried using the "username map" and setting the values in there, but
it still isn't working.  I also tried setting and creating "domain user map"
but that isn't understood by Samba 2.0.7.

Thanks for the idea.

Use the "username map" option in smb.conf.
