John (and anyone else),

That link says the same registry keys we're trying to set. Attempting to
join the Samba domain is still failing with an error those registry keys
cannot be found. This same installation disk was used to install Win7
on another box and it worked just fine. I can't think of any changes. I
don't understand why the previous box and win7 worked and this new box
with win7 is failing.
