We use pam_smb for logins directly into the linux box.  However, is my 
current config using pam_smb as well for SMB sessions?  For instance, if 
you map a drive, and you give windows the credentials to map the drive, 
this part of samba is not case sensitive.  Its this password here we are 
mainly concerned with.  

is there a smb.conf directive to use pam_winbind?
