How to join window server 2003 using scripts?

i would like to ask how can i join a domain ( window server 2003) automatically when linux boot up? Is there any script that i could write to put in /etc/rc.local? Please assist me. Thank You.

Question 2.
And if i join domain using command
"net rpc join -U username"
Following mesg appear when i type the command :

"[2008/07/26 08:00:54, 0] param/loadparm.c:map_parameter(2443)
Unknown parameter encountered: "encrypted passwords"
[2008/07/26 08:00:54, 0] param/loadparm.c:lp_do_parameter(3139)
Ignoring unknown parameter "encrypted passwords"

and it will ask for password after that. i able to join the domain but i wonder why these msg appear?
