Hey John,
I've been working on this most the day.  Just can't seem to nail it 
down!  (Yes sir I did read the "How To")
Winbind is working fine - I can:
wbinfo -g
wbinfo -u
getent passwd
getent group

Problem is when I try to use a domain group on a Samba share I get a 
username and password prompt; although, nothing seems to get me in!

Please advise
