The thing you are looking for is winbind.  The Samba HOW-TO collection
(http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf) has an entire
section on winbind and how to set it up.

I have been successful in setting this up in a test environment, however I
am having a bit of trouble making it work in a production environment
because my production server has something different going on than my test
server. I can give you my sample config if you want it, however I am just
using what is listed in the howto.
