hmmmm not sure offhand if I understand.  A quick review of where thing 
stand now:

1. 2.1 Server running Netscape Directory Server (is not configured as a 
client, don't think this matters???)
2. RHEL3 system running Samba PDC with LDAP backend pointing to the 2.1 
3. The directory shows an Administrator account with uid 0.
4. Commented out the default root = administrator mapping in 
/etc/samba/smbusers on the samba server.
5. Can manually attach to shares with appropriate user/pw, but cannot 
join the domain as Administrator or as root from a windows 2k/XP client 
(bad username or password).

Regarding what you are saying, from the RHEL3 Samba server a "getent 
passwd" displays Administrator and root both with uid=0 along with the 
other available local & remote ldap accounts.
