Lets be blunt here, you are using:

An OS this isn't supported.
A version of Samba that isn't supported.
A helper package that is dead.
A version of Windows that doesn't support joining an NT4-style domain.

It may be possible to join the Windows machine to your very old domain,
but I have run out of ideas and feel the problem is very probably at
the windows end.

I have run out of ideas mainly because I have never been in this
position, I keep fairly up to date and never use unsupported software.
