[Samba] User validation in domain different than workgroup

I'm not entirely sure I understand.  You want your users to be validated 
against the UPVNET domain controller, right?  How does COMOPT come into 
then?  Is COMOPT the domain root, and UPVNET a branch ( or subforest, or 
whatever they call it )?  From Samba's perspective, it shouldn't matter 
the relationship:  Point samba to UPVNET as the DC, and let the win2k 
boxes work themselves out.

Please let me know if I got what you want wrong.
