Somehow I can't figure out what's going wrong. I have a Samba server 
running as PDC. Workstations can join the domain and users can logon. So 
far so good. I need winbind to be able to authorize a radius server to 
the PDC. This I cannot achieve. If someone got give me a clue, I spend 
already quiet some time Google the net :(
