Win2K joining a Samba domain progress

well, it is damn frustrating.

I now seem to have opnum 0x05 implemented but I now get the following error:

  The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "sambanet":

  The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.

However, the opnum 0x05 seems to have succeeded.

However, what is interesting is that Win2k sends an opnum 0x28 against
\NETLOGON to an NT4.0 svr which succeeds, while Samba does not like it.

Perhaps we need to find out what the 0x28 is.
