Need help for Samba PDC NT

I've installed Samba 2.0.6 under Linux RedHat 6.2, as a PDC for Windows NT
and 95.
I know that I can use encrypted passwd for Windows NT Workstations, but
will it work with my Windows 95 PC ?

Moreover, before being on my Linux Server, Samba was on a SGI Origin 200,
it was Samba v2.0.3. Cause this machine was used for calculating, we
decided to move it from this SGI to  the new Linux Server.

I've created all accounts and configured the smb.conf file as it was before
with some modifications.
 Now, it is like this :

# Global parameters
        allow hosts =
        workgroup = GMA1
        server string = Serveur sous Linux du Domaine GMA1 (Samba %v)
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        log level = 1
        log file = /home/samba/var/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        deadtime = 360
        keepalive = 180
        read prediction = Yes
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY
        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        username map = /home/samba/     (In this file, I have
: root="Adminstrateur")
        #local group map = /home/samba/        (how can I do
the same under 2.0.6 ?)
        #domain group map = /home/samba/ (how can I do the
same under 2.0.6 ?)
        logon script = logon.cmd
        logon path = \\%N\profiles\%U
        logon drive = H:
        domain logons = Yes
        local master = false
        comment = Samba %v
        print command = lpr -r -P%p %s
        lpq command = lpq -P%p
        lprm command = lprm -P%p %j
        delete veto files = Yes
        veto files = .rhosts
        dont descend = /proc, /dev
        wide links = no
        getwd cache = Yes
        max xmit = 32768
        read prediction = yes
        message command = /bin/mail -s 'message from %f on %m' root < %s;
rm %s
        name resolve order = host bcast
        comment = Repertoire Prive de %U sur %h
        path = %H
        invalid users = nobody root
        read only = No
        create mask = 0755
        valid users = %S
        browseable = no
        comment = Page Web du departement GMA
        path = /public_html/sitegma
        guest ok = Yes
        comment = Repertoire commun d'echange de fichier
        path = /home/users/commun
        read only = No
        comment = EPSON EPL-7500 v52.3
        path = /tmp
        guest ok = Yes
        print ok = Yes
        printer name = print_gma1
        printer driver = EPSON EPL-7500 v52.3
        printable = Yes
        writeable = no
        comment = Utilitaires du loggin
        path = /home/samba/netlogon
        read only = No
        locking = No
        case sensitive = no
        preserve case = yes
        public = no
        comment = Partages des fichiers reseaux
        path = /home/samba
        read only = No
        comment = Profiles Utilisateurs
        path = /home/samba/profiles
        read only = No
        create mask = 700
        directory mask = 700
        browseable = no
        # Fixe correctement les droits dans les profiles
        postexec = chown -R %u:%g /home/samba/profiles/%u/
        comment = Comptes utilisateurs
        path = /home/users
        read only = no
        valid users = root
        browseable = no

I think I put the good rights to all those directories.

It is working, but I have some troubleshootings.

- I can't log on my domain with the "administrateur'"login, even if I use
usename map.
- When I log on under my account, each time, I have the "Welcome under
Windows NT" message !
- When I log on under my account, the office startup menu tool doesn't
load, but it takes all processses of Windows NT
- When I log on local on a machine, I can see other PCs from the domain,
but when I can't reach them. I always have en arror message like : "bad
passwd or unknow user" 

Could you help me ??

Soory for my bad english,
