NT login problem

Hi All,

I have taken over a network with samba 1.9.17 running on some old suns.

What I'd like to have happen is for people to be able to have access to unix
shares based on their unix account group membership (which I know how to do
thanks to the FAQ) and for them not to be prompted for an account and
password when they connect (like
connecting to a NT share)

The first part is easy, but I don't know how to achieve the second  part.
The previous admin used /etc/hosts.equiv, and the related smb.conf entry to
get rid of all login validation. I'm not keen on that, and I don't think
that it should be necessary.

Also, do I still have to set NT to use plain text passwords?
