Samba and trusted domains

This is something completely different from my previous posts. Thus,
I have a laptop that is given to me from my company. The laptop has joined the company's domain and I can successfully log-on the laptop at my home.
In my home I have setup samba for local users/PCs. I want the laptop to join that domain too!
Samba acts as PDC for domain HOME and all other PCs. I can change any setting in my Samba. But, I have no control on the AD PDC of my company. Thus, I cannot ask them to add my Samba as trusted domain.
So, can I add my company's domain as trusted to my Samba and thus have the ability to logon to AD and Samba?

Thank you in advance,

I'm assuming the laptop has windows.

If all you are doing is sharing files, you can just map to the resource at home manually to a drive, and authenticate using <domain>\<username> syntax...there really isn't a need to be able to "participate" in your home and work domain on the same computer.

Correct, but that way I will have to keep my 'home' profile aligned with the 'work' profile. I do not want to do that. Anyway, it seems that nobody else knows something more. Thank you for your reply.
