add to primary samba server...

wins support = yes

add to any other samba servers...

wins server = w.x.y.z (where w.x.y.z is ip address of your wins server)

As for webmin...it is possible (I think...been a while) to set up webmin
to automatically create samba user when creating unix user. I don't know
if samba password is automatically created from unix user at that time.
It cannot convert passwords for existing users but it can import the
user list.
