Different machine names? (machineWin/MachineLnx)

Just my 2 cents.

Subject: [Samba] dual boot linux/winxp, winbind

We have a bunch of dual-boot boxes (linux/winxp).  I'd like to be able 
to use winbind (against ads) for user authentication on the linux side, 
but it appears samba has to join the AD too.  Upon joining the AD under 
linux/samba, it makes the windows side of things stop working (machine 
account has been modified).

In the past, when using an NT4 domain, I was able to tell samba to use a 
different (netbios) name, via (in smb.conf):
netbios name = hostname-samba
netbios aliases = hostname

When trying this now against ads, it *appears* to join the domain ok, 
but it doesn't work.  For example,
$ wbinfo -t
checking the trust secret vi RPC calls failed
error code was STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW (0x80000005)
Could not check secret

Suggestions/workarounds for dual-boot machines?
