I assume you mean username but just in case...

  user whn (me) is in /etc/passwd and was attempting to add it
       to private/smbpasswd
  The experimental account is "joe" and that has a dummy entry in
       /etc/passwd and is in private/smbpasswd.

  topelo has DNS entries for and and the mapping. is a connection to an NT 4.0 SP4
  box for testing purposes and is in /etc/hosts.  topelo is the DNS
  primary DNS server for the domain.

  In the production environment there will be no external connectivity.

The files were copied from a functioning 2.0.0 setup on topelo for trying 
to make it into a PDC.

	Thank you,
