[Samba] problem adding server to domain using ldap

I followed the howto's that I could find and believe I am close. 
However, I'm getting a message from the Windows2000 box I'm trying to 
add to the domain that the user (administrator) doesn't exist.

I have the machine name added to the ldap server with machineName$ as 
its UID.  I have been able to add a win98 box to the domain and login as 
administrator so I know samba is using the ldap for authentication 
(administer account doesn't exist on the samba box).  However, the 
message stating the user doesn't exist persists.

Does anyone have any idea what I'm missing?
