If you want to try to use winbind, this might work.  I haven't had too much
luck with winbind, but you can give it a shot.  You'll need to go back and
recompile samba on your clients, specifying the "--with-winbind" option.  Then
you'll want to have a look at some of the documentation files.  Look in the
doc/textdocs directory of the untarred samba source file.  You should find
something with winbind in the name.  That will give you instructions on what
changes you need to make to your samba configuration, PAM configuration, and
NSS configuration.

You can't make a difference until you are willing to be different.
