Sorry, I should have specified - Samba 2.2.7 manually compiled with 
ACLs, on Debian unstable.

However, I have just this morning worked out both of those problems. For 
all the future Googlers out there who are banging their heads against 
the wall as much as I have been:


Setting up winbind with the nsswitch.conf stuff works perfectly (as far 
as those two problems go).

Only problem I have now is working out how to preserve the ACLs on files 
  I copy from the W2k to the Samba machine. xcopy /o seems to be it, but 
it comes up with "access denied" and the file is empty, as well as 
having the default permissions (copying person is owner, etc). More 
Googling needed...

Thanks for your help, everyone.
