I did a little poking around in old '.bash_history' files, and if
what I found combined with my memory (always questionable!) is
accurate, what I did was to use 'runas' in a CMD window to log on as
the user in the other (untrusted, IIRC) domain and run 'mkpasswd'
and 'mkgroup' from there, with the output re-directed to a temporary
file.  The accounts from there can then be added to /etc/passwd and
/etc/group.  It's not much, but HTH!
