Ah!  Well that won't work.  When a client attempts to join a 
domain, it expects the trust account to have a known value 
(the client's netbios name append with a '$' character).  
Once it successfully joins the domain, it will change this 

Therefore, you will need to use a different netbios name 
on either Linux or NT and add both names (computers) to 
the PDC.
