As far as I am aware the only method of sharing authentication information *to*
an NT4 server is via trusted domains and/or using PDCs/BDCs etc. Samba does not
do the PDC (Primary Domain Controller) function at the moment.
Alpha versions apparently do. You can, however, share authentication information
*from* an NT4 server. Winbind, which is a NSS library, in combination with
pam_ntdom allows this.
