[Samba] samba 3 and active directory computers

Hmmm....Same problem still.

I will note that Samba installed from Ubuntu's repositories does not include
the file ntlmssp.c on my system.  I did grab a copy of the file, put it in
the proper place, restarted samba, and I see the same things in my logs.
The samba version from the repository is 3.4.7.

I am still locked into how to make this work.  It reads that this seems not
to be a problem at all in Samba 6 and I am debating installing the latest
stable version of samba from source instead of aptitude.  Of course, that
means I don't get patches from Ubuntu for it but once I get this going I am
hoping to not have to do any real work on it again for a couple of years.
