Think about "encrypted password = true" in smb.conf.

It matters. You have the choice to put your samba server into a
workgroup with diffrent name to the domain, or you put your samba server
as a member to your domain.
The first is very easy.
The second will integrate the server seamlessly to yout network.

If you have a clean running wins server, no.

Please read the "Samba-Howto-Collection" in your tarball. Most of the
questions and answers, also with step by step instruction to make a
samba server runnning wil help you.
My own expirience is to read the man page of smb.conf side by side to
output of "testparm -s " will teake the best effect to understand the
configuration an possibilities of samba.
