[Samba] Linux and SMB using single passwd

Hi All,

I would like to set up a samba server but using the same user / pass for unix 
logins and smb logins.

This works fine if I use non-encrypted passwords but I have to apply the 
registry patch to set my win98 clients to use non-encrypted passwords.

Could I use pam_smb to authenticate the Linux box against its own smb server 
then use encrypted smb passwords?

I understand that if the smb is not running, unix users will not be able to 
log in but this will not be a problem.
