[Samba] smbclient AD v NT4

I have two domains, one being NT4 and one being AD.  I have an XP
workstation connected to each (called xp_nt and xp_ad). I have a
CentOS4.4 workstation (called linux01) which needs to connect to the
shares on each XP workstation without using local xp accounts.  I have
a network account in both the AD and NT4 domain with the same password
as on the linux machine.

Samba is installed on Linux01 but not configured or running
(samba-3.0.10-1.4E.9), just for the tools. I can run "smbclient -L
xp_nt" which then asks for a password, then lists the shares.  However
It doesn't work for the AD connected XP machine.

Is it possible to mount a machine connected to an AD domain without
running winbindd etc...?
