Dumb question time; I can't find the answer in the Samba-3 or HOWTO 
docs: how do you add users to the passdb.tdb (tdbsam's db)?  Is 
pdbedit the only way?  I ask because the Chapt 3 Samba-3 example has 
passdb = tdbsam in the samba config file, but the instructions for 
adding users are to use useradd and smbpasswd, which leave passdb.tdb 
empty (except for root--I have no idea how that got in there).
