Password sync with encrypted passwords

I've just subscribed to the samba lists, but I have been reading Samba Traffic
for a while now.
I saw a while back a discussion about this topic and it came out that the best
solution would be to change the pass on Unix (in this case Linux) with a web
interface and let PAM sync it up with the NT DC.
Is this still the case? Is there a way to let the password aging inherent in
windows work using the native dialogs?
I have about 120 users and about 15 have their passwords synched. I'm in a
transition. The guest on failed pass is great for this.
There is also the problem of detecting if the passwords are different. Would
this still be a problem or are there some automatic mechanisms in place now?
