[Samba] REPOSTt: ads_connect error joining W2K3 AD domain

I'm trying to join my knoppix (debian unstable) 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
