using the Samba client library for NTLM authentication

i'm interested in using the Samba v3.0 client library for implementing
automatic logon for a web application for Windows network authenticated
MS IE users (NTLM-over-HTTP). the required API should make it possible
to negotiate authentication parameters (+get challenge) and authenticate
a user in separate phases. the NTLM library i've tested so far seems to
require that the same operating system process executes both phases of
the authentication protocol. in effect this means that i can only use
one authentication process. i'd like to be able to increase
authentication concurrency if possible. can i use the Samba libraries
for this? can anyone give any pointers to relevant documentation or code

the Windows workstations run NT4 and XP, and the authentication server
is a Windows 2000 AD server in my case.

best regards,
