First off, Samba 2.2.3a is VERY old! If you want relatively recent Windows
clients to be able to work with Samba you really should use samba-3.0.14a or
3.0.20 (released last week). I understand how tempting it is to work with an
old-old trusted version of open source software, but believe me, the Samba
Team are constantly challenged to keep Samba interoperable with the latest
incompatibilities Microsoft inflict upon the Windows networking world. Samba
2.2.3a is unsupported and has been discontinued - and not without reason.
In order to achieve cross-domain interoperability you need to use inter-domain
trusts. See the chapter regarding this in the Samba3-HOWTO. You can either
purchase a copy of the book "The Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide,
second edition", ISBN:0131882228, or download the PDF from:
