Craig and others:

Excellent suggestion, and I am currently working this through. I am
using the guide in the samba-HOW-TO document, in the fast start segment,
to set up a domain member server, as this describes precisely what I am
looking for.  I have copied in the suggested smb.conf (thankfully I have
a spare server that is serving as a testbed), modified it slightly to
fit our domain (our domain name, proper netbios name, removing the
shares that don't apply etc)  now I am trying to get things running.  

I executed the net rpc join command supplying the proper credentials for
our domain, and it successfully joined the domain

I started nmbd, and smbd, but when ever I try to start windbindd, I get
an error that the command is not found.  I am guessing that it means
that the windbind daemon is not installed, but im not sure as I may be
missing another concept someplace else -- can someone please point me in
the right direction.
