I wanted to comment that we are using winbind, in production, for
authentication of dial-in PPP users against the NT domain from Linux.
The system has not been in operation long, but it seems to be working
flawlessly thusfar.  A big thanks to winbind's developers (and of course
the Samba developers on whose work it relies).
