Hi, not sure what you are trying to achieve here, if you just want to 
upgrade samba and end up with a NT style PDC then you should be able to 
follow that post, but you probably should upgrade to an AD DC, NT style 
PDC's are extremely old and have not been really been supported by 
microsoft for some time and they may remove support at any time.

If you do decide to go for the AD DC, then the samba wiki will be your 
friend, or it would be if it wasn't down for maintenance ;-)
