Please help me!!! figure out what I'm doing wrong with my passwd chat or

I have Samba 2.0.2 running fine on a Solaris 2.6 (NIS master) machine
(been mapping Unix
homes and shares for quite some time).  Samba is now setup to be a PDC
and am
testing with a WinNT 4.0SP3 client.  I want to change passwords from the
client with
Ctrl+Alt+Del  I am NOT trying to "sync passwords" YET.

Below are some messages in the log after I try to change the password
(debug level = 3,
passwd chat debug = true)  I can login to the PDC fine so I know my
username and password
are working.  I just can't change my password when connected to the PDC
from the pc.

I get the annoying "username or old password are incorrect" message.

With NIS I have an entry in /var/yp/passwd and /var/yp/shadow
I also have an entry in /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd

My workstation also has an entry in the above three files.

   time server = Yes
; needed for "staff" group members to have administrator priv. on pcs.
   domain admin group = @staff
; needed for unix password syncing
   passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
   passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *new*password* %n\n *passw*d*d*on*
;   unix password sync = yes
;   passwd chat debug = true
   case sensitive = no
   preserve case = yes
   ;mangle case = yes
   ;default case = lower
   short preserve case = yes
