As I understand samba now, in order to be able to login from windows,
he should execute the command  "smbpasswd -a userpassword" in his 
linux box first.

We are adding large number of users to our linux box by using the 
"newusers" command in linux. The newusers command helps us to have
an initial passwd for the users. My questions are

At present windows login for users is enabled by the sysadm executing
the smbpasswd command as the user, after creating the account. 

But this is a very cumbersome process when we create around 500 users
at one go. Is there any way this can be overcome ?
