Since there is a big silence about this, I was going to skip this test. 
I installed a BDC (Win) and was about to vampire my real domain, to try 
further steps. But then I tried "Usermanager for Domains" from that 
machine. This works perfect. I had "log on" on my real domain before 
though : going to My Network, then to the Promises domain, and select 
the samba machine, and then select a share. Then you have to provide a 
username and password for the Promises domain. If you start Usermanager, 
and select the Promises-domain, you can do all you like, it works.
Back again to the WinME-machine. Logged in in the Promises domain, tried 
to access some shares, with no problems. Then to Usermanager. There I 
had the same problem : impossible to add a user.
Next I'm going to try a Win98 machine. I'll report back.
