I can still see my home shares even though I'm not logged onto the domain.
Windows does prompt me for user/password when I access it though, because my
Windows password isn't the same as my Unix one.

Yes, I've joined a computer called VALIANT. Actually, it joined itself
because of the "add machine script =" line in my smb.conf.

I've got the Samba 3 Howto and Reference Guide book here with me. As far as
I can tell, it doesn't provide the answer.

To recap:

- The computer called VALIANT is joined to my Samba domain.
- I can log in with any user I've added using pdbedit (I'm using tdbsam)
- These users also have a true Unix account
- I can change password for both Windows/Linux, from Windows because of
"passwd program =" and "passwd chat =" in my smb.conf.
- If I add "valid users = sa" to my smb.conf, I can still access my shares
but cannot log into the domain.
- root can always log into the domain regardless of the valid users options.
