Sure, this pc :-)

Main things are:
authconfig - make sure you enable winbind authentication
check /etc/nsswitch - you should have have 'files winbind' for passwd,
shadow & group
Make sure smb & winbind are running:
service smb start
service winbind start
If all is well you should be able to join the domain with:
net ads join -S DOMAINCONTROLLERNAME -U administrator
You should no be prompted for the administrators password.
Shout if you need configs to look at.
