That is true.  We ran into the same problem.  However, you can turn off that
functionality.  And then join it to a Samba domain without a problem.  I
don't know what effect that would have on Exchange running on the Small
Business server as we are only using it for a MSSQL/application server.

Unfortunalely it was one of my windows admins that turned off that "feature"
that requires it to be a PDC and he's since left the company and I don't
know how to do it.  But it definately can be done.  I think it was had to be
done through a commandline command and not through a gui of any kind.
