Microsoft provides the Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT).  As one 
of its features, it's supposed to let you import users from a NT 4 
domain.  Since a Samba server runs an NT 4 domain, any chance that ADMT 
would work?

I'm guessing no, for the same reason that a Samba PDC can't take an NT 4 
BDC, but I thought that I'd mention it as a possibility and see if 
anyone knew if it would work.
