You have to first tell that what linux distribution you are running.

And for second problem, search a tutorial on internet for "Samba as PDC ie primary domain controller" .

Samba is just a application used in LINUX which support window's networking protocol, so basically we use samba  in mixed networking environment with MS windows.

Which linux distro you are using ? like Mandriva or Slackware or Redhat or Fedora..
Hope you got the point now ?
