Sure, Windows NT it is CIFS/SMB + NTLM, you can emulate a NT domain
server using Samba using it own database backend (TDBM), or you can
store samba domain info in a LDAP Directory which is more common, using
LDAP as a backend you can even install BDC.
Check the samba official howtos for the tools to migrate (hint vampire)
Windows domains based on 2000> it is another story, they incorporate
kerberos on top of all the protocols + DNS. Samba4 will support Active
directory domains. This samba version is still beta, I hope the next
year will be ready.
