NT 4.0 (WS) refuses to join domain

I carefully have read the "NT Domain FAQ" and have the impression I have
done the described steps. But, still I get the message that NT doesn't
find the machine account (in german language because of german version).
The configuration is:
Linux 2.0.33 with libc5 (Slackware)
Samba 1.9.19-prealpha(Snapshot at 1st July 1998)
NT 4.0 Workstation with service pack 3 installed
The net for the NT machine (18.104.22.168/30) isn't real because the
routing is done via an static arp entry at muppet, but this should
interfere with connections beyond muppet only and therefore doesn't
affect NetBIOS protocol.
The following things does work:
- Connections of any kind from brainbug to any host in the internet
- Registrating Brainbug in the workgroup for which Samba is responsible
(named 'NILI'), mounting SMB filesystems with encrypted password from
Muppet on Brainbug.
But if I try to get Brainbug a member of the NILI domain, I get the
error message that the Brainbug machine account does not exist.
I assume nmbd is working right, because I can see all the things
described in the NT domain FAQ in the paragraph
'You should get a wonderful message saying "Welcome to the
SAMBA Domain." If you don't, then please first increase your debug log
levels ... and you may also see a "Net Server Get Info" being issued on
the srvsvc pipe. Assuming you got the Welcome message, go through the
obligatory reboot (the NT box, not the Samba server).'
Hm, everything happens as described in the FAQ, execpt the message
"Welcome to the NILI domain".
There is a hint in the next section of the FAQ that inconsistent
network masks can produce this problem. I double checked that they
match, and tried a full class C subnet (192.168.1.0/24) instead of the
sub-C subnet 22.214.171.124/30 to eliminate a possible problem with
netmasks not bound to a full byte.
Has anyone an idea what maybe goes wrong? I attach my smb.conf file
to this message, and the log files (log.nmb, log.smb, log.brainbug) are
available at http://muppet.faveve.uni-stuttgart.de/~gero/<filename>.
P.S.: Please respond with a Cc to me because I am not (yet) a member
of the mailing list.
