[Samba] Joining a Linux Machine to a Windows 2003 Active Directory Domain

Hey all, I'm trying to join a Linux machine running CentOS 5, Samba version
3.0.23 to a Windows 2003 Active Directory. I can authenticate successfully
against Kerberos, but I cannot seem to join the domain. I'm using
instructions from this article
but when I get to the join command I get this

[root at 0-1-3-1d-38-f2 ~]# net ads join -U adjoin
adjoin's password:
Failed to set password for machine account (NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED)
Failed to join domain!

Any help would be most welcome!
