Per se, that concept doesn't exist between Linux and NT. You can have a Linux system using Samba that authenticates against an NT domain. And as the developmental versions of Samba mature you'll be able to do at least some of the NT domain functions with Samab.

What exactly are you wanting to accomplish? Single repository for usernames & passwords?

What I want to achive is for the users the Linux domain to access resources on the NT one but every time I attempt this the NT denies the Linux machine access.

As far as I know, to do that each Linux user has to have an account in the NT domain. It's possible that the next generation of Samba will provide that functionality, but the current releases done. As an aside, the third time our collection of NT domains at work munged their SAM databases, which broke trusting, we gave up on it and just created accounts for all users that need cross domain access in all of the relevant NT domains.

You can't setup trust relationships between Samba and NT.
If you're getting access denied, then it sounds like the accounts haven't been setup properly at the NT end.

Make sure you add the Linux box as a valid computer on the NT domain.  First set up the NT domain manager and add a the linux box (select a netbios name for it).  Next run smbpasswd on Linux to create a machine SID:

smbpasswd -j DOMAIN

samba's security should be set to domain and the password server set to the NT PDC.

You mentioned a "Linux domain" and an "NT domain" -- they must be the same domain or the domain controllers won't like to play.
