The way I've always done it for the windows trusts samba case is to
smbpasswd -i -a, and set a password.  Then you put that password into
the windows server.  

I've not done the setup for the other direction, but I understand there
may be some bugs.

Chatting with tridge around the office, he was trying this out recently,
and thought some things were wrong.  We may well, have some issues (or
at least unclear docs) for the windows-trusts-samba case.
