Unable to logon w/ Samba PDC

My setup:

Windows 98 workstation
Windows NT server
Linux / Samba (latest CVS)

My Windows NT server was originally installed as a standalone (non PDC/BDC).
After installing the latest Samba and figuring out the new password file
structure, I added my Windows NT Server machine (FREAK) by using
'smbpasswd -am freak'. I changed the network config from my previous
workgroup to the new Samba PDC-ed domain and all was well. Upon rebooting
and attempting to logon to the domain, I get the following error:

"The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon

The local policy *does* allow "Logon locally" which I'm guessing must not be
the same thing.

I'm not an experienced NT admin by any means, but I'm pretty sure I've read
practically all of the Samba documentation in the distribution and I'm not
sure what I'm missing. The account I'm using was added to smbpasswd using
'smbpasswd -a user'.

Any help appreciated!
