Under Start->Programs->Administrative Tools, does it say User Manager
or User Manager for Domains. If "for Domains" then it's a Domain

I'm not sure what you mean here. What do you mean by "see the
NT box"? "Recognising the NT server"?

Try joining Samba to the domain. It's really easy. First go to
Start->Programs->Administrative Tools->Server Manager and select
Computer->Add To Domain. Enter the name that the Samba server shows
up as in Network Neighbourhood.
Then, on the Linux box, do
# smbpasswd -j MYDOMAIN
Then, in smb.conf, do
workgroup = MYDOMAIN
security = domain
password server = *
and restart smbd.
Give it a shot.
