Nope, it's a single standalone domain.

The domain is "MILKYWAY" (a throwback to an earlier network); the DNS suffix 
is set to "homenet.philpem.me.uk".

I was going to say something along the lines of "but it's not turned on in 
smb.conf", but it seems the Ubuntu boot scripts start it by default... I've 
stopped winbindd (via 'sudo /etc/init.d/winbind stop'). In about two hours 
I'll know whether it's worked...
