Side note, but look at the ntsid utility from to
change the machine SID after duplication.

Also, to connect as a local account on a machine that is a member of a
samba controled domain, use the follow syntax

net use x: \\<machinename>\share /user:<machinename>\<accountname>

Otherwise it will default to accepting the account name as a domain
account.  I'm assuming, I haven't done a netmon trace on it to verify.
