Yo, thnx for the support!
I installed samba 3.0 alpha2.4.
Strange enough i could compile it now --with-pam without any problems so
that is done also.
The new net command is cool, i love it!
Finally a tool to sets the time easely also!
So i tried again to join the 2003 domain and this is what i get:

lnx:~# net join -U Administrator
[2003/06/05 10:19:54, 1] utils/net_rpc.c:run_rpc_command(154)
  rpc command function failed! (NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED)
[2003/06/05 10:19:59, 0]
  NTLMSSP packet check failed due to invalid signiture!
[2003/06/05 10:19:59, 1] libsmb/cliconnect.c:cli_full_connection(1274)
  failed tcon_X with NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
[2003/06/05 10:19:59, 1] utils/net.c:connect_to_ipc(148)
  Cannot connect to server.  Error was NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED


After that i added the linux pc in my win2003 server via the active
directory and gave it all the rights, but the problem stays the same

Samba 3.0 joins as an active directory member, and therefore avoids some
(but not all) of these painful hoops.

Winbind authentication is done to the PDC, which must be connected at the
time.  There is a project around to cache this information in PAM, but there
are other issues there (getting the user list etc).
