[Samba] Adding a Windows 2003 Server to a Samba PDC Domain

    I want to add a brand-new Windows 2003 Server machine to a Domain 
controlled by a Samba 3.0 PDC.  I DON'T want the Windows 2003 Server to 
be a BDC, a PDC, a WINS server, or anything else; I just want it to be a 
member of the domain for domain logons.  Basically I want it to act more 
or less as if it were a Windows XP Pro machine.

    It won't try to do anything stupid like become a PDC or BDC, enable 
Active Directory, or anything like that by default, will it?  Will 
adding this to the domain be as simple as adding an XP Pro machine?
