Do you have any information about your setup?

I myself, followed the following information to setup a working ntlm authentication. Against win 2003 but I think it's pretty mucht the same process.

did you test the rpc with wbinfo -t ? Did the samba/winbind join to the 2008 domain correctly?

the cache.log in squid also helps a lot in troubleshooting.
