Yes. We had that problem when we added win 7 boxes to our Lan. 
Fortunately, openSUSE has a tool which lets you do just that. You have a 
LDAP server which handles the Linux and the Windows accounts via a samba 
schema. Delete the Linux user (but not his home directory) and add the 
same user as a LDAP user. Tick the samba attributes box. That's it. Yast 
does the rest and you can then use single sign on for both Linux and 
Windows clients. I must admit that without Yast, I wouldn't have 
attempted it. This only works with Samba 3/LDAP. I'm struggling to get 
it working with Samba 4 at the moment.
