[Samba] Converting passwords to Linux (NIS)

On our network, some users authenticate against a linux server running NIS, 
while some authenticate against a Windows NT machine via Samba. We want to 
dispense with the Windows machine (who wouldn't!). 

Ideally, I'd like to preserve the users' current passwords. Does the Samba 
suite include tools that allow this? Thank you for your help!
