The traditional way is to run Samba 4.0 alpha as a DC using the 'Samba4'
instructions as normal (eg the samba binary), and then run on another
network interface or machine the Samba3 binaries (smbd, nmbd, winbindd)
joined to that Samba 4.0 alpha domain. 

We hope to have a more integrated system for this in the near future,
for a 4.0 release.
