Joining Linux Distro's to Windows 2003 Domain

I'm connected to a windows network that was just upgraded with 2003 servers with Active Directory. I have a machine that has XP Pro and Linux Mandrake 9.2 dual booting. I have tried several times to join the domain with Samba 2.8 and even 3.0 I have failed miserably. What should my smb file consist of...for instance the Workgroup, password server, security etc... Could the problem be with our domain? Is it a qualifying domain? UHS.local=Domain. Does Samba support 2003 Active Directory? Any help will be appreciated.

hmmmm, goed question,
I am not shure but Here is my opinion:
the xp box and linux box should have same ip address ( if static) and host name.
and try to authentica your self using smbclient.

let us know.
we want to learn it .
is the best question ever.
