The homedir is irrelevant, you can user 'security = server' and 'password
server = ntpasswordserver' however you will have to setup a dummy account
for every user you have on your NT machine (in order for every user to have
a valid UID) and user groups will not be mirrored.

PS If your setting up fax you will probably want to follow the instructions
with mgetty+sendfax for fax with samba, *not* the docs supplied with samba
in Faxing.txt
