Maurice - to rule out a firewall conflict, do

service ipchains stop

and then try to join the domain.  If it works, then you need to modify 
your ipchains rules:

ipchains -I input -p tcp -d 137 -j ACCEPT
ipchains -I input -p udp -d 137 -j ACCEPT
ipchains -I input -p tcp -d 138 -j ACCEPT
ipchains -I input -p udp -d 138 -j ACCEPT
ipchains -I input -p tcp -d 139 -j ACCEPT
ipchains -I input -p udp -d 139 -j ACCEPT

Then run

service ipchains save
