First you need a VPN configured between the sites, then configure your Samba environment treating the VPN as if it were internal routers connecting a couple of subnets together. I dare say you do not 
want to configure broadcasts to go over the VPN, thus my analogy of internal routers and a couple of subnets.

I have multiple Samba servers and a Win2K server all chatting over VPN links.

Hire a consultant that has done it successfully and securely if you are in such time constraints... else you can plan on looking for a job when you are hacked, or the entire thing pukes on you when 
users want to get their work done. This task is by no means a mere "Hello, World!" experience.
