[Samba] SUSE 9.1 & Samba

I am not a fully qualified Pro at this, but there are a few caveats to
windows / samba integration:

Samba does not use encrypted passwords by default, but NT-based windows
(4.0SP3+ 2000, XP, 2003), will use encrypted passwords by default. As you
can imagine, the encrypted password does not match its plain-text original,
thus causing a password failure.

More info on this can be found in the Samba Documentation (even in SWAT) and
on: http://samba.linuxbe.org/en/samba/learn/encryption.html

The rest, unfortunately, I cannot help you with.

I still have not gotten samba client to work right on SUSE 9.1l. I 
finally got to join the domain, but it changed the smb.conf from ADS to 
Domain. If I do smbclient -L servername and put in my login and 
password, it comes back access denied. I have a couple of questions 
though that maybe someone can answer.

The Servers are Win2K with Active Directory running. I know the domain 
controller and password werver is named mailman and can ping it. The 
security is with ldap.

1. Going to Yast, system, runlevel editor, it shows smb running. All of 
the documentation I read says smbd. Has this changed or is this 
something peculiar to SUSE?

2. From what I have read, it seams winbind is for PAM security. Is it 
also used for ldap?

3. Do I need winbind on this machine that is only a client?
