On Windows 2K professional Machine when we try to join the domain, we get
the following error,a text box pops up saying 

"The following error occured attempting to join the domain TESTING

Please help us out of this. Free pizza for whoever helps us configure
Samba successfully ;-)

Thanks in advance,
