Can I have this clarified, please?  I have been trying to get "UNIX
password sync" working for a while, and have come to the conclusion that
it will only work if the unix box running samba is also the Domain PDC. 
Unfortunately, I am trying to fit my unix box into an existing WinNT
Domain with an existing WinNT PDC.  If anyone has managed to get it
working from this angle, I would very much like some help.

Thank you
