I know we've been almost here before, but you definitely don't need winbind
just to allow your Samba to connect to domain shares. To become a genuine
part of the domain, I guess you would, but I do this from a machine that is
firewalled off from the domain (because I don't know enough about Samba to
be sure I don't do something bad).

In Kubuntu, you'd go to the control center, "Internet & Network", "Local
Network browsing" and simply enter your windows domain user name, as
DOMAIN\USER, and password. Then all attempts to mount a Windows share use
this. I'm sure there must be something similar in Gnome.
