samba and win2k AD / HELP!!

I've been struggling with this for a while now.. I will post my smb.conf and krb5.conf and kdc.conf in a few minutes, just need to get into linux first.
Okay my question is : currently we are running a win2k active directory here, my PC's DNS is is my domain ?
when I choose My network places --> entire network --> Microsoft network --> epbd01
all of the computers on our network is on there is epbd01 my domain name then?
I'm sure I am jsut confused by the terminology here, I need to get this Linux pc on the network so I am able to access some shares on our domain controller epb01 but I need to know what services needs to be running I basicaly only know of smb that should be running what are the others? (Okay obviously also kerberos as it uses it for authenticicating)

Will post conf files now..


netbios name = ops009
security = ADS
encrypt passwords = yes
#wins server =
#ads server =
workgroup = epbd01
hosts allow = 192.6.
password server =
#winbind separator =+
idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
template homedir = /home/%D/%U
template shell = /bin/bash
winbind use default domain = yes


default = FILE:/var/log/krb5libs.log
kdc = FILE:/var/log/krb5kdc.log
admin_server = FILE:/var/log/kadmind.log

ticket_lifetime = 24000
default_realm = ENGINEPARTS.CO.ZA
#default_tgs_enctypes = des-cbc-crc des-cbc-md5
#default_tkt_enctypes = des-cbc-crc des-cbc-md5
#forwardable = true
#proxiable = true
dns_lookup_realm = false
dns_lookup_kdc = false

kdc =
admin_server =
default_domain = EPBD01

profile = /var/kerberos/krb5kdc/kdc.conf

pam = {
debug = false
ticket_lifetime = 24000
renew_lifetime = 24000
forwardable = true
krb4_convert = false

and kdc.conf
acl_file = /var/kerberos/krb5kdc/kadm5.acl
dict_file = /usr/share/dict/words
admin_keytab = /var/kerberos/krb5kdc/kadm5.keytab
v4_mode = nopreauth

master_key_type = des-cbc-crc
supported_enctypes = arcfour-hmac:normal arcfour-hmac:norealm arcfour-hmacnlyrealm des3-hmac-sha1:normal des-hmac-sha1:normal des-cbc-md5:normal des-cbc-crc:normal des-cbc-crc:v4 des-cbc-crc:afs3

as far as I know these are the only files I have altered, please tell me if I need to configure more of them. Am I on the right track with my current configuration, my main problem is that net ads join administrator@ENGINEPARTS.CO.ZA gives me a nt_status_bad_network_name so I can't join the network, I know for a fact that I have some mistakes in the config files... can someone pleaaaaaaaaase help me out!
