David & all,

   It seems like there's 2 problems.  In my understanding of Samba a UNIX
account is required in any case.   As to the second problem with the realm,
could you please post your smb.conf?  I'm not sure what would cause that problem
other than being in the wrong workgroup or pointing to the wrong AD server.
