Samba-TNG acting as a BDC

I am quite new to samba and am not sure this is the list I should be
posting to. I have installed samba-tng branch on rh 6.2 and have
configured it using the smb.conf file attached, however, I can not seem to
get my nt machines to see the domain. I get the error that the domain
controller can not be found. I'm sure it is something silly that I have
overlooked. Thanks in advance for your help.
