If you set up a newer version of Samba (2.2.3a), specifically "winbind"
you can do a "getent passwd" command and retrieve all users (local linux
and NT Domain users) in the same format as /etc/passwd.  This includes
the "Full Name" field from the NT domain accounts.  It would be simple
to extract the full name from a specific ID in this format.

    that seems to be able to do that. Does anybody have a clue what I can use 
    for that purpose?
