There is probably so much code broken in HEAD in 
the respect (auto creating the machine account when joining 
the domain).  I know Luke had it working in TNG.  the 
best place to start is to figure out what calls are needed,
which ones are not implemented, and examine the encryption
implemented in these calls in TNG.

There's a better way to do this I think.  Check out TNG 
and compare first.  Since that work has already been done. :-)
