OK.  I have a NT machine named SUP2.  It has a machine account (trust
account) called SUP2$ in private/smbpasswd.  Because of a bug in some
administrative management software (Digital Internet Locker) the unix
account sup2$ has been removed.  The trust account still exists in
private/smbpasswd and the machine can still login to the domain.

When does the need for a real unix account come into play?  When creating
the initial trust account?  For future DC stuff?
