Sven, you may be using a similar system, but it isn't recommended. The 
OP is having problems getting a Samba domain member working, I have 
tried to point him in the direction of a known working set up, once he 
has this working, what he does with it, is up to him. He may be able to 
use the dnsmasq server, I don't know, but if he has a working system and 
it stops working when he adds in the dnsmasq server, he will know where 
to look, won't he!
