I did the above mentioned steps also, but it tells after I give it the
"root" and password (this means the root and password of the Linux machien
which has been configured as PDC, I hope?) that 
"The following error occured attempting to join the domain "TESTING":
The credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials."
Now what could that be for?

No we have been trying to set the domain as TESTING but it does not allow
us we are still in the same place?
