I'm wrong when I say 'net join' need for Winbind, but, I need join the 
Samba Member in the Samba PDC to be have features of a Domain Controller 
for workstations Windows can access the Samba Member of the correct way.

The question is, why when I join Samba Member in the Samba PDC  
(with command 'net join'), the cifs client cannot more access Samba 
Member with authentication Kerberos?

In the Samba 3.0.x, I don't have this problem, the Windows access 
Samba Member through the NTLM authentication, and Linux through the 
authentication Kerberos.

In the Samba 3.0.x, 3.2.x and 3.3.x, the CIFS client can access 
Samba PDC through the authentication Kerberos, because the 
Samba PDC don't need 'net join'.

In the page have setup of Samba PDC with authentication Kerberos, 
for Debian Etch, stable setup: http://eduardosachs.org/mediawiki/

No, I mistake when I say this about Winbind and 'net join'.

I so sorry for my error and my terrible english!

Thank you very much!
