Cannot authenticate against netinfo on the OS X 10.2 server

I have an OSX  10.2.4 server and I want my OSX 10.2.4 client to join the domain on the server and authenticate users against this domain when they log in. Here' what I have done:

1- I created my shared netinfo domain on the server using the Open Directory Assistant application.
2- I installed a password server for users to be authenticated against
3-  On the client machine, I have used both the Broadcast binding method as well as static binding. With static binding I put in the server IP number under netinfo/configure and for tag I put in "network".
4- I have even added the machine record to the parent Netinfo domain.

Still when I start the client and type in an account name that exists in the server domain it doesnt authenticate and I cnt log in.

Here's a hint that might help:
On the client machine, in Directory Access under "Authentication" , if I choose Custom path and press Add, no domain come up. Shouldnt I see some option so I can select my search path?

Anyway, has anyone got this to work successfully. It seems to be quite involved and much tougheer to setup a shared domain on OSX than it is on NT. Does it even work?
