Yes, that's 3 extra bios names.  Enclosing them in quotes
will make it a single name, which is wrong.

Yes, these are share-mode parameters.  When used in [global]
section, these changes global defaults and apply to all shares
unless overriden in a share.

Not users but their passwords.  When users (or machines) change their
windows passwords, they're not propagated to unix password databse,
only windows passwords (in tdbsam) are changed.

Change what, exactly?  Unix password sync?  Why?  Unix passwords
are not used by windows.

The problem at hand is that a client is unable to, as it seems,
find the AD domain controller, but there is no AD domain controller,
only NT-style controller...
