XP handles domain stuff differently to the previous OSs. Amongst other things, it always wants to synchronise offline files, which is a pain.
Also, be careful when you log in with a user who has 'admin user' with XP. Most likely it will try and create the profiles, which will be owned by root. XP will barf and complain. Works fine with NT4, though, don't know about 2k. So either chown stuff to the right user, or set up some stick permission thingies somewhere. Things should magically come right.
-If when joining the machine to the domain you receive the error "The RPC Server is Unavailable" try setting a static IP address on the XP machine then try joining again.

For SuSE or OpenSUSE users checkout the [Samba PDC/OpenLDAP howto|http://www.stress-free.co.nz/content/view/126/2/] as this takes advantage of the Yast administration tool to do a fair bit of the manual work for you.
