I understand it goes like this:

Samba 2.2 supports being trusted by NT.  Its a bit odd, and mainly works
due to the fact that domain logons and interdomain logons are almost
exactly the same.  Not 'supported', and only works for NT domains with
just a PDC.

Samba HEAD has support for both being trusted by NT and trusting NT.  We
don't support doing anything with Win2k ATM.  Trusting NT is still a
work in progress, but we have shown the basic concepts.

Samba TNG claims support for being trusted, but I've not tested it
myself.  You will need current CVS - TNG was able to pick up some of
HEAD's work in this area to get around some nasty bugs.  Samba-TNG
trusting NT domains is a bit dodgy, becouse you need to setup the
'username map' manually.
