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.....
