We are testing out samba at the moment version 3.0.0-15 on Fedora caore 1.
And are using winbind to comunicate to our NT domain. doing a wbinfo -u at
the command line scrolls threw all our domin users on the NT pdc. :)

At the moment we are trying to get the samba server to creature the unix
users from the supplied NT user accounts when an NT use logs onto the box
for the first time by a mapped share.

At the moment we are trying to just doo this with adduser %u but no new
users are being created.

Has anyone got any suggestions as what to try next or links for me to look
at to point us in the right direction.  Anything would be much appreciated
as i need this working by the end of the week at the latest.
