answering my own mail:
We sleept a night over the problem, removed the Win2K-Server from the 
domain, deleted the enteries in /etc/passwd and smbpasswd, restarted 
samba, joined the Win2K-Server to the domain again. And now 
everything seems to work: logins, profiles, polices, logon-skripts, 

The only thing knowen to be changed: This time we entered the domain 
name in small letters. It's in capitel letters in smb.conf. Is the 
domain name case sensetive?
