Red Hat samba versions > 3.0.4 seem to have done a thorough job of 
breaking compatibility with AD's in Native Mode.  It *looks* like this 
is fixed in 3.0.8 which we have not yet released as a supported RH 
package.  Reviewing your configs may be worthwhile as you might be 
encountering other problems -- also in some cases it is required to 
reset the domain admin password and select the account to "Use DES 
encryption types for this account".  Otherwise you can test with 3.0.8 
(the RH9 rpm made available via samba.org does install without issue on 
RHEL3), but keep in mind that it is not officially supported by RH at 
this point in time.
