(This is a resend to my question, due to an error between the keyboard and chair.)

I installed red hat 5EL. I created samba users in command line using
pdbedit -a username and then supplied a password at the prompt.

On our fedora core 5 server the users are listed in a file called smbpasswd, much like /etc/shadow

Where in red hat 5EL is the smbpasswd file or what file stores the users and passwords? Does creating a samba user still require first creating a red hat user by the same name?
