[Samba] Unix Kerberos authentication - how?

I managed to set up a Samba server that accepts Kerberos 5 TGTs via
SPNEGO/GSSAPI for login. However, when I don't have a TGT it fails for
Unix clients. It asks for username/password for Windows clients and then
fails trying to do NTLMv2 authentication.

How can I set up a Samba server that asks for username/password and
then uses a Unix Kerberos KDC (Heimdal v. 1.2 in my case) for 

Many thanks,
