There is a basic one on the Samba wiki and the internet is littered
with them. The only problem is that there have been reports posted on
here about big problems with using an NT4-style PDC with the latest
windows versions.

Anything you can do with an NT4-style domain, you can do better with a
Samba 4 AD domain, so why make problems for yourself ?

It might help if you were to explain just what you need to do with your
new domain, you have said you need Unix & windows machines to join the
domain, but is there anything else ? like a mail server or squid etc.
