Trying to setup samba as a PDC, but i cannot get my windows XP Pro boxes 
to join the domain. When i go to join them, it tells me that the domain 
server cannot be found. Below is my smb.conf file. I have already 
applied the necessary XP pro registry patch. I have followed the 
directions as outlined @ 
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/eserver/tutorials/samba.html and 
have also referenced the Samba-PDC how-to. Any suggestions?
