ADS Problems

I am having a problem with Version 3.0.13-1.1-SUSE and ADS.  For one 
thing I am trying NOT to compile from source, or using an unstable 
branch of the source to get ADS authentication working for Samba.

I have joined the machine to the domain, I am able to view users with 
getent passwd and wbinfo -u.  I can view users within containers etc, 
but I cannot authenticate any of them.  I am recieving an error of 
check_ntlm_password:  Authentication for user [testuser] -> [testuser] 

Let me give a brief explanation of the AD.  I have two OU's.


I am able to view users from OU=authenticated, but not from CN=users 
(the default in MS 2000 AD).  Is there a reason for this?  The reason 
why I ask is I would like to authenticate the users in that container as 
well as the users in the OU=authenticated.

On a lighter note, where can I get an updated SuSE RPM for Samba?
