I don't know much about HPUX, and am not familiar with what you mean by 
"trusted", but if using NIS, you need your Samba server running on your NIS 
server.  If not using NIS, then you just need some way of taking the passwd 
they hand you and encrypting that under Unix.  There's a place in the smb.conf 
file for passwd script (refer to the docs, I don't remember what it's called).

As for generating the smbpasswd file, I would expect it should be the same, of 
course, as I said, I don't know what you mean by "trusted".

Sorry if this isn't much help. 

P.S.	Have you gotten Gerry Carter's book yet?  If not, go get it.  It's 
	invaluable for PDC configuration.

     There cannot be a crisis today; my schedule is already full.
  A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.
