Hmmm, not certain how to check this from a Win98 or Win95 machine (the 
campus I am currently at does not have WinNT Workstations).  What strikes 
me as wrong is that we are logged into the domain (at least, as far as 
Windows 95/98 is capable), and it seems like Samba (2.0.6/2.0.7) should be 
checking the passwords against the domain controller (since we have 
'security = DOMAIN' directive).

These are Windows 95 and Windows 98.  Again, this week I do not have any 
Windows NT clients available.
