I'm trying to install Samba.
I need to put some files on Samba server accessed from Windows clients and authenticated through our Win2k Active Directory Server.
I'm following instructions from "Chapter 13_ Identity Mapping (IDMAP).htm", but at the moment I cannot connect. I've follow many directions from too much sites over Internet, and there are a lot of instructions, buy I cannot get connected. When I type \\my_smb_server from Start/Run menu on a machine signed as Administrator, appear a Window asking for user and password.
When a type net ads join -UAdministrator
Administrator's password:
I get this: 
[2005/08/09 14:22:20, 0] libads/kerberos.c:ads_kinit_password(146)  kerberos_kinit_password Administrator at MYDOMAIN.COM failed: Cannot find KDC for requested realm
