I never seem to get any feedback but I solved my XP problem by setting the
Local Security Policy -> IP Security Policies to 'Permit'.

Today I got my first XP in my network. I installed applied the registry
patch and it logged perfectly in the Samba PDC. After that I started the
Windows Update. I couldn´t install the SP1 but I installed all the hotfix
left and them, after a reboot, the XP took almost 30 minutes to log into the
Samba PDC.

my 0.2 cents.
