Install rshsvc on your NT server (PDC, BDC).
Install ResKit on NT server (you need addusers, ntrights).
Now you may call addusers from linux via rsh.

A bit more clarification would have been nice, but very quick response

which clarification? Feel free to ask, it's for free now.

Linux# man rsh
M$   # notepad rshsvc.txt & explorer rshsvc.htm

You may also read tons off docs from M$, they are all more or less usefull and/or without errors. You may believe it ;-))

Go and check out http://www.cis.ksu.edu/~mikhail/Passwd/ Mikhail has written a script that syncs NT and Unix user accounts.  It shows you how to setup NT user accounts from the Unix side.  There is also a link to another system that works the other way (Maintain Unix from NT)
