Angry Samba 3/Windows 2000 Integration

Okay, here's what I'm trying to do. I have a file server running Fedora Core 2 running Samba 3. I'm also running a Windows Active Directory Domain. I want the client machines to be able to map their home directories from the file server. Also as an admin I want to be able to browse the home directories from My Network Places, and add/remove domain users and groups to the shared directories under the Security tab, like DOMAIN\steve or DOMAIN\group. I have tried to implement this using Samba on the FC2 machine. I added the FC2 machine to the domain using this command:
[root@hugo samba]# net ads join -S OLDSONY -U Administrator
Administrator's password:
Using short domain name -- MARKHAM
Joined 'HUGO' to realm 'MARKHAM.HOME'
After that the machine came up in the My Network Places fine. But when I try to open it up, I get access denied. Now when I create a user on the domain controller that is identical to a user on the FC2 machine, it works, and I get access to the share as that user. Why won't it work for Administrator? How can I map the windows Administrator account to root on the FC2 machine? Also once I'm into the share as that regular user, I can't change the permissions on the share or add users and groups to the share on the Security tab. When I change the permissions or add a group or whatever and hit "apply," the changes I made just dissapear. I'm not sure how to go from here to get this working. Here are some of my config files.

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from (
# Date: 2004/10/11 20:13:44

# Global parameters
        workgroup = MARKHAM
        realm = MARKHAM.HOME
        server string ="MARKHAM File Server"
        security = ADS
        password server = *
        encrypt passwords = Yes

        comment = Home Directories
        path = /home
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes
        public = Yes
        writeable = yes
 default = FILE:/var/log/krb5libs.log
 kdc = FILE:/var/log/krb5kdc.log
 admin_server = FILE:/var/log/kadmind.log

 default_realm = MARKHAM.HOME
 dns_lookup_realm = false
 dns_lookup_kdc = false
 default_etypes     = des-cbc-crc des-cbc-md5
 default_etypes_des = des-cbc-crc des-cbc-md5

        MARKHAM.HOME = {
        kdc =


 profile = /var/kerberos/krb5kdc/kdc.conf
 profile = /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/kdc.conf

 pam = {
   debug = false
   ticket_lifetime = 36000
   renew_lifetime = 36000
   forwardable = true
   krb4_convert = false
If someone could give me some pointers on how to get this implementation going or point me at some resources that would be great.

Thanks in advance.

There is a tread here that I found was very helpful for me to get it going correctly. I have tried this method on Core 1 and 3 and got it to work correctly on both. Here is the thread...

Good luck!
