You're not supposed to type in "C:\windows\>"... that represents the 
prompt where you type stuff in. Just do this:
net use g: \\testsrv\ads

As a seperate issue, I would consider upgrading Samba to 2.x.y (2.0.10 
maybe), 1.9 is pretty old...

Also, this was probably better suited for the samba-general mailing 
list, not the technical one.
