The problem is that there are two sets of Samba documentation, that in
2.2 and that in HEAD.  The doco referenced in the first link is that for
HEAD, where the -j smbpasswd paramater no longer exists (moved to 'net
rpc join').  The second lot of doco is probably either 2.2 or an older
snapshot of HEAD.
