[Samba] OSX client logging on to SAMBA PDC

I know that OS X can join an Active Directory Forest/Domain.
(Utilities->Directory Access->Services->Active Directory)

I have been trying to see if I can get an OS X client to
logon/join a SAMBA PDC, without success.

I always get:

Invalid domain
"An Invalid Domain and Forest combination was specified.
You should enter a fully qualified DNS name for the domain
and forest"

Has anyone used "Directory Access" to join an OS X machine
to a SAMBA PDC rather than Active Directory. Or can I get my OS X
machine to use SAMBA when authenticating users in another way.
