This option is only supported under the HEAD branch.  See the disclaimer
at the top of the Table of Contents on the NTDOM FAQ (linked off the
main samba page ).

Domain logins require "security = user" and a [netloong] share.  Chech
the docs/DOMAIN.txt file ( or something like that ).

	security = server
	password server = <NETBIOSNAME of PDC>

to get this working under the main branch.  Or try out the 
security = domain option **only** available by downloading 
the head branch via cvs.  See the NTDOM FAQ for instruictions 
on how to do this.
