[Samba] Winbind issues! HELP!

You know, John, if you need to get something working fast, you can manually
configured dummy user accounts on your system and not use winbind at all.
As long as their is a password entry for the NT user, it should be able to
authenticate off the domain controller.  I'm only using winbind so that I
don't have to maintain two lists of users (the NT user list and the password
file).  The only "problem" you might find is that all the user own fields
will be owned by the UNIX equivalent user account, not by the NT Account it
self (i.e. :owned by UNIXMACHINE\USERNAME rather then DOMAIN\USERNAME).

OK.  This is becoming very frustrating!!

I have Samba 2.2.3a installed on a Sun running Solaris 8.  Winbind is
installed and seems to be working fine.  My PC users can map the Samba share
via their NT domain account information (PDC is an NT4 box).

As soon as I copy nsswitch/libnss_winbind.so to /lib and create the symbolic
links (nss_winbind.so.1 & nss_winbind.so.2) my PC users can no longer

Also, has anyone been able to get Telnet authentication via winbind to work
on Solaris 8??

I am running up against a serious deadline.  HELP!!
