Samba Win2k3 Member Server

Good Morning All. I hope I used the correct terminology in my title...

Basically I have a RHEL4 samba server that used to act as our PDC. Now I have a shiny new Win2k3 DC. All of our network shares are stored on the RH4 box. The problem is, when users that have logged on to the Win2k3 domain try to access the network shares on the RH4 box, they get prompted to re-authenticate.

How do I make the samba service running on the RH4 box authenticate off of the Win2k3 AD server? I've done some google searches and I know the documentation exists, most of it just seems to be incomplete, or not acceptable for our current configuration.

For example, this RH4 box is also the kerberos authentication server for all of our linux clients. So I'm not able to modify the krb5.conf file without hosing the linux clients' authentication.

Is there a way to setup a trust with either pam or kerberos which would allow samba to query the AD server for network share user authentication?

Thanks for any/all help.
