It was in a workgroup with the same name - I changed it and now it fails
differently. The Network Identifiation dialog always prompts for a user name
and password, whether I create a machine account in /etc/passwd and in
smbpasswd or not. It accepts my credentials now when I log in as root, and
creates the accounts successfully if I have not already created one, even
changing the password (since when I look in smbpasswd the hash has
changed) - then just locks up for about 2-3 minutes before reporting 'cannot
join domain, GBD000CD (the domain name) could not be contacted or is not

Looking in the Samba log files, even set on loglevel 3 doesn't seem to show
anything as failing..
