Thanks, but I'm not using winbindd - just the older pam_smb.  If they
work independently perhaps I could add winbindd.

The trust exists and works for people using Windows products.  However
I don't think it gives you the ability to log into the wrong domain.
I think you have to authenticate with your own domain controller, then
the credentials work with the other domain.  My problem is that
I don't know who will be in each domain at any particular time.  I
just want to accept the password if the user exists and it is correct
for either one.

It is working in compatible mode and the trust is working.  But if it
is supposed to be possible for a user in the other domain to log into
the wrong pdc I am doing something wrong.
