Winbind + Bash + Login

I've managed to get Samba, Winbind & W2K3 Server working together.
I'm able to login at my linux box using DOMAIN+username.
Is it possible to drop the 'DOMAIN+' part ? So linux adds automaticly a default (preset by myself) domain prefix to the username ?

So users won't have to type the whole DOMAIN+username part anymore, but just the 'username' ?

Is this also possible for FTP access ? (vsftpd)

At what point are users being prompted for their names? Are they logging into the Win2k3 domain. I am using group policy, folder redirection to route users "my documents" folders to shares on my samba server. I am also routing their department folders to this server. The only time they log in is at windows logon. I guess FTP would be a different story though, haven't treaded that path yet.
