Get "Your account has been disabled" when trying to logon to NT Wrkstn

	Search for your username in the the smbpasswd file.  Look
at the 5th colon delimited field.  If you see something like,
[DU	], remove the D.  (At least, thats what worked for me)

	From my experience, it seems smbpasswd adds a D to any
account I use it to change the password, which seems to have the effect
of expering the account.
