Can't change password via Win98

we're running Samba 2.0 (latest CVS version) as PDC, with a local
smbpasswd. I have the following entry in smb.conf:

   security = user
   encrypt passwords = yes
   passwd program = /usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd
   passwd chat = old*password %o\n new*password %n\n new*password %n\n changed


smbpasswd -r localhost -U dnehring

I have no problems changing my password, but when I logged in with a
Win98 machine (works flawlessly, btw), I got

"The domain controller for this domain cannot be found."

Any idea?


PS: Is the machine name "hostx$" required any more in smbpasswd? I works
for me without that entry.
