No-password SMB mounts

Well, the new Samba 3.0 alpha builds have AD support.  I've gotten it 
to work both ways, by mounting a Samba 3.0 server on a Windows desktop 
using Kerberos authentication, and the smbclient I believe has a -K 
option so that it uses Kerberos to connect to a Windows share.

If you have questions I can re-set up that environment and test a few 
things again...
