[Samba] Problem with winbind (is this the right list?)

I'm running a RedHat 8.0 system.  Pretty much stock.  But I uninstalled 
the version of samba, samba-common and samba-client that came with it. 
 Instead I downloaded a tarball from samba.org.  I have just finished 
compiling and installing samba 2.2.7 using the --with-pam 
--with-smbmount --with-winbind options during configure.  I also made 
the necessary changes to smb.conf, /etc/pam.d/login, 
/etc/pam.d/system-auth.  The system has been added to my NT 4 domain 
with the smbpasswd command.  If I test using the following commands:

wbinfo -u
wbinfo -g

I get lists of the NT domain users and groups, respectively.

Also, if I do:

wbinfo -a DOMAIN+username%password

I get the following message:

plaintext password authentication succeeded

So... it looks like my system is communicating with the NT PDC.  But... 
if I try these commands:

getent passwd
getent group

I only see the local users and groups listed, respectively.

Also, when I try to log into the console with DOMAIN+username and then 
the password
I get the following message briefly, then I am thrown back to the login 

user not known to any authentication module

Anyone else here have winbind working?

If this is the wrong place to post this, please let me know.
