The setup is working on both side, the only difference between what is
written in Samba HOWTO is, as i said in a previous message:

- configure DNS on the Samba server so that the Samba server can
resolv Active Directory special DNS names (i had to install a local
correctly configured bind caching nameserver cause the guy who is
using the Active Directory server didn't used our company global DNS)

- configure Kerberos client on the Samba server (the same way you do
it when Samba is an Active Directory member server)

Now i can "see" Active Directory users and groups on the Samba server
(with wbinfo) and Active Directory "see" the Samba users and groups.
