After perusing the archives, it appeared to me that RH8 & Winbindd didnt 
play well, and it was a lot more RH8 than winbindd. Similar problems to 
Mine joined the domain, NT server mngr was completely faked out, registered 
in WINS, 9X, NT & 2K could ping srvr by NetBIOS name, but log.winbindd said
"cant find dcs for MMCENTERS"

I remembered fighting some other Kernel crap on ver 8, than when I went back 
to 7.3 worked fine, and let me install the lids kernel patch as well.

So I figured what the heck try it on 7.3, whatever it installed I ignored, 
got fresh rpms from RH, and then configed and fired up, worked first time.

So it isnt the rpm packaging per se, but I would bet that it is related. RH 
did a lot in 8 and I think it was overly ambitious.

Again thanks to all of the Samba community, excellent product, everyone from 
the CEO on down is just plain stoked!

Now if MySQL would trick folks who write their app to run atop MSSQL. A guy 
can dream!!!

Thanks again
