[Samba] Authenticating users across trusted (win2k and NT) domains

how does this work?  I thought that I simply had to
do a netlogon to my pdc with my machine credentials
(mostly transparent) and the user credentials.  isnt
that how it works?  im in an active directory mixed
mode domain trying to authenticate a user in another
(trusted) active directory domain.  looking at the
traces (debug level 10) I see that it cannot find
the user even though I tell it what domain to search.
it seems to refuse to search outside the default

basically im hacking the samba alpha22 code into one
lib so that I can authenticate and do active directory
ldap queries and check users groups and access
restrictions.  any information would be greatly
appreciated.  im sure that I am overlooking something
blatantly obvious.

thanks in advance
