[Samba] NT-domain names:

hi !

i recently had problems with my ldap+pdc configuration.
now there's a light at the end of the tunnel:

i changed (among others) the name of the domain from "iem" to "iemnet" 
and it seems to work now.
is it possible, that NT-domains must have more than 3 characters ?
or might a problem arise, since there is a linux-host by that name 
("iem") ??

another question:
"iemnet" is my local unix-domain.
does it make sense or is it dangerous or at least bad style to use the 
same name for the NT-domain too ? (i would have done so without looking 
twice, but my NT-collegue said he had a bad feeling about this)
might there be any drawbacks ?
