Please read this URL and follow it step for step and you will see that

Part of the problem is that when Samba tries to connect to the network 
the accounts you are trying to define do not exist (namely the computer, 
etc).  BTW you will need to disconnect all shares a computer has to the 
computer where you are trying to join the domain to.

Hope this helps...
