OK - which version of samedit are you using?  The version living in the
SAMBA_TNG or APPLIANCE_TNG branch is the best one at the moment. 

Next, do you have a WINS server configured on your network?  Does 'nmblookup
PDCNAME' find the PDC?  Did you compile samedit to look in the same
--prefix directory as smbd/nmbd?

Well yes it does - since samedit is a separate program from smbd or nmbd,
it needs to locate and make a tcp/ip connection to the PDC on the network.
