[Samba] Samba and Infrant

I'm using a ReadyNAS NV and exporting my home directory via NFS which
is being mounted by a Sun (which also runs Samba).

Currently my home directory on the Sun re-exports the directory via
Samba [homes] share.

The Sun (Samba) is running as a domain controller for the domain.

I tried to get the Infrant to join the domain, it created the machine
account etc, but failed to actually join (unfortunately the actual error
is hidden within the Infrant internally - not exposed via the web

I can use the Infrant as a machine in the same workgroup and that seems
to allow me to mount CIFS shares etc.

Can I utilise the [homes] section, but point to the Infrant server for
my Windows boxen to pick up the ReadyNAS by CIFS directly?

The Sun is running Solaris 9 with the Sun packaged Samba (2.2.12), the
Infrant seems to be Samba 3.0.21b.
