Connecting to NT PDC

I am relatively new at Samba. I am trying to connect a Samba server to the
NT domain within my company. I have been experencing several problems with
the server:
    1.	It takes about 2 days before the PDC recognize the samba server. I
am not sure what I am doing
    2.	The system intermittenly connects to the system. If I connect on NT
(plain word password) under homes
	first, it will connect with no problem. If I try to connect to
MFG_Docs, then it keeps crumbling with
	bad password.
    3.	I created a share, MFG_Docs. It is suppose to be open to anyone for
read. If I do a direct connect
	from any user not connected to the system it keeps asking for a
user/password. This seemed to
	work on a Samba machine not connected to the PDC.
This is running Samba 2.0.6 on Solaris 2.6. It was compiled with GNU 2.8.1
using the following configuration:
		./configure --prefix=/opt/misc/samba-2.0.6 --with-automount
--with-nisplus --with-nisplus-home
The smb file is:
