[Samba] setting up Samba server as a PDC

I'm still trying to set up our Samba server as a PDC.  I tried to do this 
yesterday and couldn't get my clients to recognize the server as a domain 
controller.  Someone on this list suggested that I upgrade my Samba from 
version 2 to 3.  I've done that, and things seem to be a little better than 
they were yesterday.  Now when I go to my Windows client machine and try to 
set it up for domain logins, it no longer tells me that there is no domain 
controller when I enter the domain name in the system control 
panel.  Instead, it prompts me for a name and password of an account with 
permission to join the domain.  So I enter my username and password.  Then 
I get an error message that says that the network path could not be found.

Does anyone have any idea if there is anything further that I need to do to 
set up the Samba server as a PDC?
