For clarity, as Kevin Colby pointed out to me, here is some more

The network itself is running NT4 PDC/BDCs. The Win2k machine is running as
a PDC of its own test domain. The Linux/Samba system is being run as a
client to the two.

I have been able to successfully get it on the NT4 domain as with my other
linux systems. I would like to try to get it to be a member of the win2k
domain. However, in either case, this system will not allow users to access

Q. To remove from a domain, you simply delete (or rename) the
DOMAIN.MACHINE.mac file, right?
