[Samba] Cannot join domain Samba PDC with ldap

I have built a Samba PDC with a ldap backend following the Howto:Samba
documentation <http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Howto:Samba>.
I am using Fedora 8 with Samba 3.0.28 and FDS 1.1.    I think I have a
working Samba PDC with a FDS backend.  I can add users with smbpasswd
-a but I can not connect to the domain.  The connection fails
complaining about the user name or password.  I have tried using a
member of the Domain Admin group and a Administrator account rid 500.
I believe that this is a problem with the machine account but I am not
sure how to fix it.  What user should I be using to add workstations
to the domain, a member of the 'Domain Admins' or the Administrator
user?  What type of "add machine scripts" should I have?  Thanks.
