[Samba] Unable to join ADS domain

I started from the HOWTO but have not had any success getting "net ads join" to work.  At this point, I'm willing to take any examples I can find.  Thanks for the heads-up on the encryption, though; that's the first time I've heard that.
What's really bugging me is that, although I have no problem getting a ticket, and I know that I'm getting it from the AD domain controller, I don't understand why I get absolutely nothing from the "net ads join".  No errors, no response at all, and no errors in the eventlog on the DC.  I know that I'm generating some traffic to/from the DC but I'm not sure what yet.

Actually, this is another case where some good intentions have created a
most misleading site. (The ktpass stuff is just bogus)

The correct documentation is in the Samba HOWTO collection.
