You are missing something, which I just realized reading this:  a couple
of emails that went back and forth off-list.  Oops.

I think the following is essentially accurate:  someone will surely
correct me if it's not.

At the moment, this is the only samba server there is, and it's acting
as a PDC.  At some point, I'll (probably) be building an actual PDC, at
which point domain master will be set to "no".  That will change the
role from PDC to BDC, which is (as far as I can tell) what I want.  The
problem right now is that, if I set this to act as a BDC, I can't
actually join the domain, because there isn't a controller.  Because of
that, this system (SL1) has to act as a PDC.  When I said it's not
acting as a PDC, I should have said "...but not being used as a domain
login controller", rather than "...not acting as...".

What I really probably OUGHT to do is set up mv (our LDAP server) to act
as a PDC now, and simply let this act as a client.  Unfortunately, I
don't have time to do it now -- I'll probably get to that sometime over
the summer, when things are a little less crazy.
