Ok, I've looked through the documentation and it suggests that the user
needs a UNIX account on the samba server (with a hashed out password) before
the password=server option will work.... so the "password=server" will not
work the way "Thiruvarasu" needs it to work... he still needs to create UNIX
accounts even though the PDC will do the authenticating...
