Daniel, for me adding a samba/winbindd server to the domain is 2 calls
to system-config-securitylevel_:

authconfig --enableshadow --enablemd5 --enablekrb5 --krb5realm=
$KRB_REALM --k rb5kdc=$AD_SERVER --kickstart

 authconfig-tui --kickstart --enablewinbind --enablewinbindauth
--smbsecurity=ads --smbrealm=$KRB_REALM --smbservers=$AD_SERVER
--winbindjoin="Administrator" --winbindtemplatehomedir=/home/%U
--winbindtemplateshell=/bin/bash --enablewinbindusedefaultdomain
--smbworkgroup=FINANCIAL --enablelocauthorize

So what is the big deal here? Oh yea you need a patched authconfig until
CentOS 5.1 is released, see http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=2213.

Maybe you could modify your contribution a bit...
