I see what my problem was with the XP domains.  It turns out that you can't 
set a domain on an XP Home Edition PC, only on XP Pro. Duh.

However, I'm still having a problem with my PC clients not being able to 
contact my Samba server after I've set it up to run as a PDC.  Still trying 
to figure this out.....
