also, how does inter-domain trust work in a mixed-mode domain?
if my samba machine is joined to an AD domain and wants to
look at the groups of an NT domain to which there is bi-
directional trust between it and the AD domain how does that
work.  in windows even?  I know that AD uses machine passwords
but does NT as well?  is the NT domain supposed to authenticate
the machine against the AD domain to which it belongs?
