Getent and AD (aka the good bad and the downright ugly)

I have managed to join my samba server to an AD domain.
I can now join using the net command and get various other bits of info.
Wbinfo -u /g/t etc works nps
Getent however doesn't.
This is my question:
By reading various emails over the last 2 weeks and various howtos etc
In order to share users and passwords etc all I need to do is edit the
passwd: compat winbind
group: compat winbind
passwd: files winbind
group: files winbind
Then getent passwd SHOULD show the local passwd file AND the AD user file?
I don't need to do the pam auth stuff for this to work?
Is this correct or have I lost the plot (and very nearly the will to live??)
Please someone take pity on this poor fool.
Im running RH ES3 and samba 3.0.14a configured with
--prefix=/usr/local/samba --with-ldap --with-ads --with-krb5 --with-pam
