Q1. Instructions "step by step" you'll find in your samba source
    subtree ./doc/textdocs/DOMAIN.txt and ./doc/textdocs/DOMAIN_CONTROL.txt
Q2. Your samba box can be PDC and domain member. Basic information about
    this topic are in ./doc/textdocs/DOMAIN_MEMBER.txt

Additional information are available at NT-DOMAIN FAQ:
