it works - but there is no way to add the global admin group to the local
admin group so I couldn't make myself as a domain admin to have full
rights on the NT workstation i am logging into the domain from.
i even tried to lower the amount of users to 1 in smbpasswd (only me) so i
able to run usrmgr on SAMBA and i could but i couldn't do any operations
on the domain ... i also tried a different tool to administer domains
called "hyena" [which is much better than usrmgr - if it can help you with
the samba project i would be glad to send it to you] but i got the same

[i had a problem here transfering a lot of files in one copy from samba
share to local NT4WKS harddisk - i was copying the slackware linux dist.]
the errors don't seem to be CRC - but i upped debug lev. to 20 and i saw
the copy just stops because smbd gets a SIGPIPE and quits the copy,
is this because smbd fills the client's buffer too fast and the client
sends the smbd a sigpipe and the smbd doesn't know how to handle it ?

i sure wish you had a url with the tgz of the latest alpha/prealpha
version (same as cvs) - a script can be cron'ed to do it i'm sure ....
