Well, in an attempt at raising the signal to noise ratio, I've 
personally had problems deciphering exactly how to use winbind with 
  - In the smb.conf do I have an idmap decleration per domain, or is the 
example given in the man page "ALLDOMAINS" acceptable?
  - (As mentioned in an unanswered mail to this list) How do I go about 
compiling the rfc2307 module, either statically or dynamiclly?

Once I get past the rfc2307 compile question, I think I'll have more 
questions. But since I don't have winbind running well in my environment 
(yet) I can bring those up later.
