[Samba] Change AD user password from Linux

Still no go on the password change.  I'm going to set up a fresh Ubuntu 8.04
install....I'm thinking maybe because my test LTSP server was set up to
authenticate to a SambaPDC, maybe something is "tainted" and is causing the
problem.  Thank you for your help.

my nsswitch.conf looks like:

passwd:          files winbind
group            files winbind
shadow           files winbind
hosts            files dns wins
networks:       files
protocols:      db files
services:       db files
ethers:         db files
rpc:            db files
netgroup:       nis

I can't  account for the fact that some of my entries have semi-colon's in
