Ok, firist of all, thanks for the "DONT USE SWAT!!!" tip... it worked for
me, very fine! :D
Now I have the Linux box in my domain, winbind is runing just fine I guess
(the getent and wbinfo commands return what they should return, and I can
set the permissions of dirs to domain accounts... i loved that, by the
way, when I decided to use samba I was not expecting this kind of thing!
Very very nice :D), but... i am having problems setting up the homes...

I had set up pam to create the home dirs, and now when I log in a Windows
workstation and acces the samba server, it shows a dir of the username. If
I try to acces it, it creates a dir in the directory i set PAM to do it
(/home/MYDOMAIN/username) but it aasks for a password! And I tyed many
passwords and no one worked... I found a lot of questions like that in
internet but no answers. Could someone help me on that?
