If you provision Samba, you will get a NEW domain. Whilst you can dump
the users etc from the old domain, you will need to create them again
in the new domain, this includes joining the workstations. Any files
etc that belong to the old users & groups will have to be 'chown' to
the new ones. The windows profiles (as far as I am aware) from the old
domain cannot be used because they contain the old domains SID.
