Thanks for replying.
There´s just 20 clients on each domain and they have the same name and 
password on both domain. I could simply change the domain name on each 
station but all users will loose their local profiles.

So I imagine that it is more productive to simply change the domain name 
and turn off the old NT server. Is there any pitfall that I can encounter ?

Simply changing the domain name in the smb.conf is enough ? It´s easy as 
that ?

Thanks in advance,
Josir Gomes
