Question Login to Fedora With Active Directory

I am trying to connect a linux box (Fedora 3) to our windows domain running active directory. I have been able to join the box to the domain, as the box now shows up in the list of computers on the domain controller. I can't seem to get it to accept my windows active directory login info however. It lists all the active directory users at login, however it comes back with the message "authentication failed" when I try to login with one of them. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

So far I have used the 'authconfig' utility and have set it to use winbind and have entered the information for the domain. I then ran 'net ads join -U administrator' and entered the password and it, after some time, came back saying that my computer has been joined to the domain which is confirmed as it is now listed on the controller.

Any input is appreciated.
