adding a mac to a windows domain

I have a new mac book pro new out of the box as of Monday. it is running OSX 10.6.6. I was adding it to an Active Directory domain. I have done this before. I went to system preferences, accounts, login options, network account server, join, added the ip of the domain controller, put in my credentials as an admin, and got an error: an invalid attribute type was provided. (4200). I redid it, and got: unable to add server. the daemeon encountered an error processing request. (10002). How to correct?

Make sure that the date and time on the Mac are not too far off of what is configured on the server.
