You started out asking if you could have network browsing with a samba 
AD DC like there is with samba3, well the answer to this is 'no'

I am not saying you shouldn't have kerberos installed, just the opposite 
in fact, you just cannot run the server part of it.

Try running this:

netstat -tapn | grep ':88' | grep 'samba'

If you do not get a response, you have a big problem.
