ummm sorry Luke, i have no clue as to what you are saying here! i made a
smbpasswd file from the /etc/passwd using the mkpasswd file, and did a
smbpasswd and changed my passwd on unix. i do not have a local account
on the nt wkstation. 

how do i fix it, so that i can now roll out the nt wkstations and ask
users to login with a std default password, and then do c-a-d to change
it to whatever they want?
