I researched a few forums and have seen that people have been having trouble with getting 7 and Samba to work. Has anyone had any sucess in setting up a Domain controller to work with Windows 7.

Yes. They work fine together. You need samba-3.3.X or greater. 3.4.X
does not allow printing under 64 bit clients but 3.3 or 3.5 are good.

To logon the domain you will need the registry entries for samba 3.4.X, 3.3.X
