Excuse me it I'm missing something obvious.  I have a sambs 2.0 ( cvs )
and I cannot add a NT workstation sp3 to my domain.  I believe my
problems have to do with the machine account, but the documentation
seems to be out of date, and I was unable to find any relevant info in
the list archive.

The samba server was domaining for Win95 clients just fine, including
login scripts and profiles.  I have gotten several error messages when I
try to add the NT workstation.

I get...

already connected must unconnected first

unable to connect to the domain controller for this domain. check
computer account on domain.

Here is the relevant smb.conf

   workgroup = Snowmoon
   netbios name = eric-gw
   encrypt passwords = yes
   domain admin users = eric
   admin users = eric
   security = user
   os level = 32
   domain master = yes 
   domain logons = yes
   logon script = %u.bat
   wins support = yes

   path = /usr/netlogon
   case sensitive = no
   guest ok = yes
   locking = no
   read only = no
   browseable = no
   admin users = @wheel eric

Any help would be appreciated.
