Thanks sk

Well at the moment its not a problem since im only using one domain and
probably only will be. Maybes heh

On a side note, even though nsswitch.conf has shadow set to files and
winbind any ideas if and why it doesn't show domain users/crypted passwords?

Thanks for your help.

you can setup your samba configuration to have a default Domain so the
usernames as the linux machine sees them, will have only the username part
(without the Domain) and you can work as expected.

Simply put
winbind use default domain = yes
in your smb.conf

There is a catch though. You can't have users with the same username under
different domains
