How do I configure Samba to use winbind-enumerated users or groups in my share permissions?

Updated -

This article applies to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 systems and the Samba 3.x.x RPMs available for these releases. Winbind features in previous versions may function differently or not at all.

This article assumes the winbind service is already configured properly and working. Other articles in the Red Hat Knowledgebase contain information on how to configure winbind properly.
