Did you add the Samba box to your domain using the NT Server Manager?
You have to do that first.  (Unless you use samedit from Samba-TNG,
which can use the "other" interface.)

  Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Server Manager
    menu Computer -> Add to Domain...
    type the NetBIOS name of your Samba box

THEN try `smbpasswd -j MY_DOMAIN'.
