Most probably the web interface only allows to join an AD domain (at 
least that's what happens to a Lacie network drive, I suppose Buffalo 
does the same).
Even obtaining shell access and manually configuring samba to join the 
domain wouldn't work (the stock firmware would rewrite the configuration 
at every boot), so the only option is to replace the stock firmware with 
a normal Linux distribution (usually debian), provided there's one 
available for your model and you can find instruction on how to do it 
(e.g. at nas-central.org).
If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it, not only will you void 
your warranty, you can also lose all of the data in it.
