[Samba] Trust between Samba 3 and Win2000 Server

Our local network is based on Linux server + Samba 3 + OpenLDAP for
authentication and other services. Win98 SE, Win2k and WinXP
are accessing the Samba server.

Our head quarter requested that we establish an VPN tunnel to their
network. They want to use file sharing between connected LANs.
Unfortunately they are running Win2000 Standard Server with AD based
domain controller (I don't know if in native or compatible mode).

Is there a way to make a two way trust between networks with my
configuration? Additionally I would like to prevent their Administrators
(and similar users) to have Administrative / Operator access on my
network. Is this possible? If not ... is there any concern of allowing
remote Administrator to access ONLY the Samba server (can the remote
Administrator execute some RPC commands on my Samba server)?

Any suggestion (please don't tell me to migrate to Windows server ;) )?
