Global Samba/Linux passwords

How do I make my user's passwords match their samba passwords without having to manually go into the configuration utility each time they change their linux password. In webmin, there is a utility to sync up the webmin's changes but what about when a user runs the passwd command to change his/her password? I want everything to use the same password on my machine, that includes when a user changes their password themselves.

You might try Linux-PAM (from
OR possibly by pointing the password file to you linux password file (from smb.conf -- if it allows it.

my 2 cents-

I think I will just use Webmin for now. I took a closer look at the smb.conf file and there are things in there about passwords.
