this creates an account, disabled, with no password.  you can verify this
by doing "dispinfo", "enumusers -u" or "samuser root -u".

>   ntpass root

this is an attempt by the user "root" to change "root"'s password.  the
old "root" password is required.

the user "root" is disabled and does not _have_ a password, therefore of
ourse it is going to fail.

use "samuserset root -p password" 

or "createuser root -p password"
