I've never heard of Samba authenticating off NIS, as Windows (SMB/CIFS) 
and Unix (PAM, NIS, etc) use different incompatible password hashes.  on 
a pure Samba system that doesn't have an external authentication system 
such as Active Directory, I've always had to use smbpasswd to setup the 
SMB passwords for the 'windows' users.
