You don't cover using winbind for authenticating other services (ie 
mail, sshd, login etc). This is a bit more tricky, as it involves more 
pam setups.

You may want to see the article I wrote for mandrakeuser.org a while 
back (for Mandrake 8.0 or 8.1, it's much easier in 8.2):


You should note that winbind setup in Mandrake 8.2 is almost trivial, as 
/etc/pam.d/system-auth-winbind is provided (replace service=system-auth 
with service=system-auth-winbind for each service you want to 
authenticate with winbind, or use it to replace the original system-auth 
  if you want all services to auth with winbind), and the nsswitch.conf 
entries are added when you install the winbind rpm. The only thing you 
need to do is uncomment the winbind stuff in the provided smb.conf, and 
join the domain.
