As long as you're using Win95b or newer, set
	encrypt passwords = yes
in smb.conf.  Samba doesn't need to be a PDC.  If you already have an NT
domain controller, you should also add
	security = domain
and then make sure you've joined the domain by running
	smbpasswd -j {NTDOMAIN} -r {PDC Netbios Name}

If you've build Samba with AFS support, it *should* work for you.
