[Samba] Samba members in NT4.0 to AD upgrade

I've got an NT4.0 domain that I'm planning to upgrade
to Active Directory.
I've got a couple of Samba member servers in the
domain, various versions above 3.0.

So I have two questions:

 1. Are there any gotchas with this scenario or will
the Samba clients 
just keep working as NT4-esque clients.

 2. Is it possible to "upgrade" a Samba member server
to be an Active 
Directory client whilst retaining the user entries for
file shares etc. 
(i.e. so the SIDs still match).

Thanks in advance for any help,
