[Samba] samba 2.2.4, domain auth, and smbpasswd file.

Look, I know this must be beaten to death, but I'm too dumb to derive (or
find) a definitive answer on my own. 

Compiled and running 2.2.4 on Solaris. I want to do DOMAIN authentication
off a w2k PDC. No matter what I do I still seem to need a smbpasswd file
that samba can see. Is this true ? Why? What good is DOMAIN authentication
if I still need this hash file sitting around? 

If it's not true, and I can nuke the smbpasswd file somehow, _please_ tell
me what I'm missing w/this conf...  ;/

(Thanks. mailto:bc at ori.org )
