[Samba] Samba on PDS, using PAM authentification

I have a small (6 PC, maybe 8 more if I get VPN working) local net with 4 
dual-boot Win/Linux workstations and a big server that has samba (RH 7.2).

What I wanted to do is build a PDS on the Samba server so the Win98 PC would 
authenticate there. I also want to maintain synced the unix passwords with 
the Windows passwords, so I thought about having samba authenticate against 
PAM (which is the default on RedHat, AFAIK).

Now, reading the HowTo, I find that when PDS comes up encrypted passwords are 
needed, and PAM can not be used.

Is this right? Can somebody guide me to some other docs on this behave?

Porqué usar una base de datos relacional cualquiera,
si podés usar PostgreSQL?
