We have a Win2K Server that is a member of our Samba PDC domain. The typical
steps were required for adding a machine account to the PDC (see samba

The only other issues I've come across were the typical "MS is thinking for
you" kinda default DHCP, DNS, WINS services were all installed
and set to start automatically, which caused a few headaches at first but
were quickly fixed.

Assuming Win2K Advanced Server isn't that much different the regular Win2K
Server, I don't think you should have any problems.
