BDC problem

I followed the instructions for setting up samba as a PDC.  I am getting a
bunch of network errors in the logs, for example:

*** there is a race condition to be exploited. ***
socket connect to /tmp/.msrpc/.samr/agent failed: Connection refused
socket connect to /tmp/.msrpc/.samr/agent failed: Connection refused

I do not yet have any NT machines (one 95, one 98, one Linux) bu will
shortly.  I am getting all sorts of errors.  When I bring up the Server
Manager NT tool for Win95, it says that my amba server is a BDC.  When I
try to promote it to PDC, it says "RPC Server not available".  I'm
assuming this has to do with the "cannot connect to
connection refused" error message.  I looked in my services file and there
is no entry for port 445.  A little guidance please?  Thanks.
