First of all, thanks for this good and quick answer !

Is the 2nd edition of Using Samba already out ? If yes where to find
it ?

smbmount works fine :
$ smbmount //DOMAIN_controler/sharedir /home/toto/smb -o

The user toto is a domain user authenticated from the Win2k server.
I can then see that toto owns all files and directories
(fmask=664,dmask=775):  does this mean that he can do what he wants ?
As if the SMB share was a regular linux fs ?
Isn't there permissions checking from the win2k server ?

What about if I what a SMB share to be mounted automatically at user's
login ?
For example: I would like ALL win2k domain users to have the SMB share
//DOMAIN_controler/sharedir automatically mounted when they log in on
my linux box.
Is pam_mount the best solution ?
