Yes.  But see my posting yesterday about username mapping
semnatics in the current code.

The short answer anser to your question is that you should just
join the Samba box and Windows box to the same domain.

But Samba does have as close ties with the DNS domain as Windows
does.  But what you asking is more of a general question about
Windows domain security and not necessarily Samba.  I really
think you should spend some more time reading docs on Windows
domains.  You need to understand the concept of domain users
and groups and what it means to be a member of a Windows domain.
