	That's the problem... I cannot re-enter the domian until I do a
"smbpasswd -m machine machine" on the Samba PDC, which has to be run as
root.  I'd like to see a way to get the machine password to be able to be
reset by a lower security user (such as a grad assistant, lab tech, etc)
so that they can fix a downed machine without having to contact someone
with root access to the campus network.
