 From my SuSE 10.0 man page on net, in the rpc section:

         [RPC|ADS] JOIN [TYPE]   [-U username[%password]] [options]

An instruction to join a domain as PDC, then, would be <net rpc join 
PDC>.  The username can be supplied on the same command line (I don't 
recommend adding the password, also, at this point--maybe I'm just 
excessively paranoid), and you'll be prompted for the password, or 
you can omit the username, also, and you'll be prompted for both the 
user and the password.

You can set Domain master via smb.conf, but that's not the same thing 
as setting PDC.
