    OK here's the problem: when i use the "smbpasswd" program it doesn't
update the "passwd" file in /etc.

    What i want: The explicate conditions in which Samba to Unix
password syncing will operate correctly on a Red Hat 7.0 (Guiness)
distro with samba 2.0.7-21ssl (included in distro) IE: perrmissions on
passwd and smbpasswd files, password program = ?, password chat = ?,

    What i dont want: Anything to do to with NT to Samba connectivity,
or any other cross platform related issues... All i want is for
smbpasswd to update /etc/passwd, thats all.
