[Samba] Query about Samba + NIS + Password Synching...

Greetings, Samba-ites... (or is it Samba-ians? Hmm)

Just wondering about something... that is, we're finally upgrading our main 
Samba servers to the latest 2.x release (2.2.8a), and we're going to be 
using NIS.. What I'd like for my Windows users is this:

When they hit <CTRL><ALT><DEL>then change their domain password, it would 
sync their Unix account passwords too, so that, in effect their one 
password would authenticate them on Windows, Unix and email... I've seen 
the nifty change-NIS-password script, but I just want to verify that if I 
set Unix Password Sync = Yes, this will change all passwords necessary..

Thanks, everyone! :)
