   You workgroup name **cannot** be the same as the netbios name 
   on the Samba server.  In other words, the following settings 
   are in valid (for domain logons at least)

	   workgroup = SAMBA
	   netbios name = SAMBA

This sure does help.  I will make absolutely sure that I'm not
doing this.  I just left the "netbios name" out; so it is at the
default value, whatever that is.
