Hmm, sorry tryed it, read the info. but pam_smbpass is only if you
use the samba (textfile) passwd backend.
so it's no good, if you have a mysql or other passdb backend.!
but i found a solution, without using winbind!

pam_smb_auth.so !! that did the trick..
only i downloaded the ftp://ftp.samba.org/pub/samba/pam_smb/ version.
but i saw there's an other version included with the samba source.
(../source/pam_smbpass) ?? but there's no readme on how to compile it..?

a well, it did the trick for me..
