After a little research (somebody did a bit or work ;-O ) with google and
the replies to my questions, this what I think I understand and will test
very soon ( Hope not to make an ass of myself. )

Okay, I asked this question before, but got no responce, so I am going to
ask again, but this time with a little more details from my side.
NT4sp6 PDC with Exchange 5.5sp4 host the mail ( and other resouces ) for my
Linux domain. I wish to setup a Trust domain.
If I understand this correctly, the NT4 domain needs to trust my Samba domain.
Now according to http://mordor.clayton.edu/samba-tng/tng-pdc-trust.html as
my reference, I will need to setup a machine account for the DOMAIN, PDC
and each of the BDC's and then in the User Manager setup the trust
This feel like I am missing something, because when a machine joins the
domain, it normally needs root password ( which I don't wish to give to NT4
Admin ) and now I don't see any password been setup here ... it just does
not seem secure. If I set my root password to something easy for the trust
setup and make it secure afterwards would that not break the trust ...
As I said, it feel like I am missing something. I have a funny feeling that
my Samba server should join the NT4 domain, but then I don't see anything
that says I have too. What should the security option set too, because I
have see a few errors in one of my domains that have a LDAP SAM, which I
had to change the option until the errors went away without kill my
network. Once I get this right, I will get a friend to help document what
I have done, maybe it could be tha basis for mini-howto or something. This
all seems like too much.
Thanks for all the help everybody has given me.
