Hmm, the problem is that my winbind ain't working on the same PDC 
server. it failt to authenticate users..
(think it's something with the secered key? although that might be 
strange, coz the PDC server is doing it's job fine..)
and makeing the server join it's one domain, against it self ??
(net rpc join ......) doesn't sound good to me?!

also, i don't need the usernames and groups to be resolved (coz it's the 
PDC, they are already in the posix passwd and group files)
pam_smb_auth, might be old and un supported, but it's small and doesn't 
need an extra service running, winbind does..

i've got winbind running on the other servers (mail and http), and there 
it works like a charm.. so.
at the end, it all work.. even with old un-supported software.. HAHAHA

Thx, Collen
