[Samba] Samba authenticating, but not against domain

I think I have found part of my problem. When I run a 'getent passwd'
command the password type field of the domain users all have * instead of x.
Has anyone seen that before?

Subject: [Samba] Samba authenticating, but not against domain
I'm running samba 3.0.10 on a fedora core 3 box. I am trying to get the
thing setup as a member server in our NT domain such that I can specify
domain users in the "valid users" directive under each share.
I believe I need to use winbind to do this effectively for a large domain.
Runing getent passwd does list all of the domain users. I believe I have
the system joined to the domain. I added the server through the windows NT
server manager, and then ran the NET rpc join command.
I think I am joined to the domain properly, but somewhere my authentication
configuration is screwy.
I can't get people authenticated against a share, even if they are listd as
a valid user under that share in the smb.conf, unless I run smbpasswd -a
<username> and then specify a password. This defeats the purpose, as I the
password isn't synched with the NT domain.
