I'm still not able to connect to the Samba server as a PDC from the client
machine. I've added root as a Samba account in smbpasswd, and I've added
the IP address of the Samba server machine to the WINS server list on the
client. But I still get a "network path not found" when I try to configure
the client to be a member of the domain.

OK, I hate to seem like I'm terribly dense here, but I guess I am. What is
a "machine account"? I'm only familiar with accounts for users, not

Sorry, but what "add machine script" are you referring to? I'm not
familiar with any add machine script.
I don't mean to be unnecessarily annoying, but I've never used domains
before and I'm still very unclear on what exactly is required to set up a
domain controller. Is there some good documentation on this somewhere that
I could refer to? The Samba documentation seems to be sadly deficient on
the topic of how to set up a Samba server as a PDC. If anyone has any
further advice or guidance on how in the world one can get a Samba server
to work as a PDC, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Thanks very much,
