... but it also does not work with win98 on my systems. That was 
the problem. Most of the computers on my lan  use Win 98. I think 
i read something about this topic and as far as i can remember it 
was announced to work in samba 2.1.0?! 

BTW: Can anyone tell me which features of the NT-usermanger or 
already supported and which will be supported by the next samba 
version? Haven't had the time to find it out yet. :-(
