Domain trusts (in terms of us being a PDC trusting other DCs) are
currenetly a work in progress.  We hope to have it finished for Samba

However, why do you need domain trusts?  (There are lots of good answers
to this question, but make sure you do have one of the answers).

Samba 2.2 has always supported being a member server in a domain with
domain trusts, for the record.
