I'm trying to join my linux laptop(samba3b3) to a W2K3 active directory 
domain.  I am able to run kinit jpowers at POWERSINC.ATH.CX, and after 
requesting the password, it seems to complete without error.  After the 
kinit, I try to net ads join, but get the following error:

[2003/08/04 11:34:58, 1] utils/net_ads.c:ads_startup(176)
  ads_connect: No such file or directory

I am logged in as root when I'm doing this, and jpowers at POWERSINC.ATH.CX 
is a domain admin.  My smb.conf is appended at the end of this e-mail.  
I checked the archives, and found that this has happened to other people, 
but I didn't see a response in the archives.
Thank you for any insight you can offer on this problem.

        realm = POWERSINC.ATH.CX
        ads_server =
        security = ADS
        encrypt_passwords = yes
