When joining a linux PC to a windows domain, what other program do you need to install alongside samba?

EXPLANATION

The krb5, or kerberos package (whose name may vary slightly between different distributions, e.g. on debian the package containing it is called krb5-user) is required to join the domain. As well as configuring the smb.conf for samba with the details of the domain, the krb5.conf file must also be configured with the kerberos realm used to authenticate against the domain controller. Without kerberos, authentication may not take place on a modern windows network.
