	I can imagine at least two ways to solve that problem.

1) You could give privileges to other users to allow them to join
   workstations into the domain.

2) You can configure the 'add machine script' parameter in your
   smb.conf to "automagically" join new machines into the domain.

	For both scenarios, you can find more details in the
Samba Official HOWTO and in the Samba By Example.

	Kind regards,
