[Samba] Samba & Active Directory - Login from non Domain Machine

I have Samba running on debian etch using winbind and my windows 2003
active directory infrastructure.  Everything works find.  I have one

I cannot connect to a share from a machine that is not on the domain.
If I try to connect to the share from a windows xp box that is not on
the domain that the samba server is in, I am prompted for a username and
password.  If I put in my domain credentials, I still get an access
denied message.  However if I login to a computer that is on the domain
using credentials that are part of the group that is allowed access to
the same share, I can get into that share without an problem or prompt
(as you would expect).  I just don't understand why I cannot connect
from a machine that is not a member of the domain.  Any thoughts?

Also, how do you have samba re-read the smb.conf file without having to
restart smbd on debian?
