Samba joinng to windows 2003 domain

I am running redhat 8.0 and samba 2.2.5-10. I want to be able to join it to the domain so I can set samba shares for specific users. Right now I can see the server in the domain but when ever I try to grab a file it asks me to logon to it.. Thanks for the help everyone.. Later

my guess is (without the smb.conf file) that you need to specify valid domain users


path = /var/tmp
comment = Random File Space
valid users = YourDomain+someuser
writable = yes
read only = no
browseable = yes

This assumes you are using '+' as your winbind separator...
