[Samba] Windows cannot add samba domain

I have set up a samba (3.0.22) as PDC on Suse and can actually login
into the linux machine from windows (My Network Places) and sambstatus
shows me as an active user. But when I try to add the domain to the
windows machine it fails and says "the specified domain either doesn't
exist or could not be contacted". I even shut down the firewall on linux
and windows just in case but it's no use. Does the presence of another
domain have anything to do with the problem? By the way it takes quite a
long time before windows detects the new domain and lists it in My
Network Places. I know it's a classic problem but still cannot find any
answer in groups or google. 
Any help is greatly appreciated!
