Now do you mean that you have a set up an NT-style domain controller
(PDC), or do you mean that you have set up an Active Directory domain
controller (DC) ?
It makes a big difference.

Just what do you not understand ?

'pearl' ?
However mention of kerberos must mean you have set up an AD DC, so
please stop calling it a PDC, it isn't one.

The Samba wiki is written around using a self-compiled Samba, so you
normally need to consult your OS's documentation for what to install,
but I install:

samba winbind smbclient libpam-winbind libnss-winbind libpam-krb5 acl
attr krb5-config krb5-user ntp

Install the above packages and follow the wiki. Any problems, ask here.
