you can use the pam_smbpass module for that. User's password will be 
written to the Samba password system when a user logs on. Unfortunately 
the stock pam_smbpass module will update the password only once (e.g. only 
when the Samba password is EMPTY). 

I modified the pam_smbpass module to always update the Samba password, ask 
me if you need this feature. (NCP is the password source here and I need 
to keep the Samba password in-sync with it).
