[Samba] Win2k Client and Samba server Domain

After a lot of searching and some frustration, I finally got a Windows
2000 Pro. client joining my test Samba 3.0.2a domain. My only question
is with the automatic user addition. After the client joined the domain,
the machinename$ was added to /etc/passwd. Is this necessary? I am
looking into migrating an 800+ client network to samba, which will
probably mean a very large /etc/passwd file. :)

I hate to sound stupid, but is this the only way to get a Win2k box to
join a Samba domain?
