[Samba] winbind samba and nt4 pdc

Hi all

I am attempting to install winbind on a Redhat 9 machine with an NT4
PDC.  The winbind version is samba-2.2.7a-7.9.0 as a stock RH install.

I have followed the install instructions on the man page and I still
get the errors shown below.

I have searched google for the STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW (0x80000005)error
and the plaintext password authentication failed error but nothing I've
found has led me to a solution.

Something I am unsure about though is the sentence in the man page that
reads: In /etc/pam.d/* replace the auth lines with something like this:

what is the * in /etc/pam.d/?

I have tried those lines in /etc/pam.d/samba /etc/pam.d/login and
/etc/pam.d/system-auth but I am unsure if those are the correct places.

Any insight or other documents that would help me with this are greatly
