Your question implies way too many possibilities. I wrote a book that
answers your questions. Suggest you read it. It will be on the bookstore
shelves by October 24th. "The Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide".

This is also available (minus a little content) as the
Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf that ships with samba-3.0.0RC4. Its in the
~samba/docs directory, and is also available from the Samba web pages
under docuemtents.
