Once you have the samba set up with winbind (use samba 3.0alphaxx), you
could use getent passwd and getent group to get all the users and group
information.  There are freeware nt password cracking programs that you can
use if you are admin on the nt box to crack and get a list of all users'
passwords.  I suppose you could create then all the users and groups on the
samba box.  Have a look at systeminternals.com for some cool nt tools.  I
think they might have an nt password cracking program.  If they don't, I am
sure you can find one with search words: nt password hack crack.

Subject: [Samba] transfer users and password form win NTto linux

Hi people!
I´m a fireman from São Paulo Fire Dapartment (Brasil) and I´m encharged to
give support to the Computer System of the headquarter.
We have for about 500 users connected in a fileserver running Red Hat 72,
but we are authenticating the users using another machine running win NT. I
would like to turn off the win NT but I don´t known how getting the users
and passwords from the win NT and transfer them to the smbpasswd.
Could you give me some help to transfer the users and passwords to the
fileserver running Samba to retire the win NT password checker?
I will be very happy for any help.
