[Samba] Moving from Samba 2.2.8 to 3.x

Samba Users:


I work in a Windows 2000 mixed mode environment. Soon they will be
switching to 2000 native mode running active directory. Currently I have
a samba server that is a member server in a NT domain. When a user from
the NT domain attaches to the samba server it automatically creates
their account and their home directory share (through a script). 


I imagine that I will need to generate a new SID for this machine to be
a member of the new domain. Once I upgrade the software from 2.2.8 to
3.x will it behave they same as it did before or do I need to contend
with additional configuration changes? Any assistance would be
appreciated either direct or any urls that I can refer to.
