authentications, /etc/passwd for UNIX or in your case the NIS map the
other is smbpasswd file for the Windows logins. To get to one
authentication you would need to either use winbind which would use the
smbpasswd file for the UNIX login or LDAP which as I understand
requires some patches to Samba 2.2.2.

The only login method from the Windows side to my knowledge that would
use the NIS map came with some NFS products I have used in the past.
