I have samba clients authenticating to Windows ADS through winbind.

All works perfectly, but I don't how to enable my linux users to change 
their password (on the windows machine) from the linux box.

Although there is a great deal of documentation on the internet, I could 
not find anything specifically to this...

A small howto on what smb.conf/pam/nsswitch/xxx parameters are required 
to do this will be greatly appreciated.
