Re: winbind

you don't have to create linux users when using winbind
it's all in the way you configure your accesses

for example

in /etc/nsswitch.conf :
passwd:     files winbind ...
shadow:     files winbind ...
group:      files winbind ...

in /etc/pam.d/samba
auth    sufficient      /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so       shadow  
auth    required        /lib/security/pam_winbind.so                    
account sufficient      /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so                       
account required        /lib/security/pam_winbind.so                    

the first will be used to gather users/groups information
the second to allow samba access using domain accounts
