I believe the answer to this one is very simple, SAMBA will not work in a 
AD domain.  You can't do it.  M$ won't let you.

I am not a member of the samba team,
and anything that I say may not be as
accurate as a response from one of the
team.  I reply to save those more
qualified time, which can more usefully
be spent developing SAMBA further.
