Ok, there's the problem then. SQL Server must be configured with 'server
logins'.  Domain logins don't work, as the linux box is not a member of the
domain among other technical reasons that I don't even altogether fathom
(domains work on DCE/RPC over SMB, so some sort of integration with the
samba client would most likely be required to make it work).

So, two options, turn on server logins or use an ODBC-ODBC bridge product
(which requires software on both linux and NT sides).

Of course, I'd happily accept patches for making domain logins work :-) (or
even network traces of a domain login would be great!)
