I found answer to my own questions. For the record, here is what I did:
1. Ran the script smbldap-populate.pl from IDEALX. This create a lot of
groups and the Administrator account.
2. Change uid of the Administrator to 0. Otherwise, it gave access
denioed when I tried to create a computer acocunt in the domain.
That's all !
