Samba vs PAM

I wonder, in which way Samba supports PAM? I downloaded 
samba-2.0.6-19991110 and there I found in changelog it's compiled 
with --with-pam.. 

My desire is to authenticate Samba users against Novell NDS. I 
managed to do this (under Linux) with many programs but Samba somehow 
resists :)

I put something like this into /etc/pam.d/samba :

auth       required     /lib/security/ use_first_pass

But Samba still authenticates against smbpasswd :( .. one more 
question - is there a way to completely disable the need of smbpasswd 
if I want to authenticate _only_ against Novell NDS ?

Please help :-)
