Joining a Linux workstation to a Active Directory Domain

Hello Guys
Please don't yell at me ;- (( But I having been searching the net for hours trying to find a tutorial on joining a Linux workstation/client to my Windows 2003 domain with an already working Linux member server.
Here's the picture.I have install a Fedora 2 as a server and have successful join it as a member server to a Windows domain.Now I have install another fedora 2 machine as a desktop. So as to log-on to the domain shares.I just don't no where to start.Do I have to configure the "smb.conf" on this Desktop machine as I did with the Fedora Server?
Million thanks in advance
