I compiled it and installed it to /opt/samba-tng, I created the password file (/opt/samba-tng/private/smbpasswd), got a conf file from, and started all the daemons. However, everytime I try to log onto the domain from windows 2000 or windows 98, or access shared folders from windows 2000 or windows 98, the username/password is always incorrect. My logs say that the password was invalid, even though I am sure the password I entered was correct. Any ideas?

Yeah. There's a few of us having the same problem. I plan to get past
this today ;-). Maybe Richard Sharpe or Lars Kneschke have had more
success this week?
