Whaooo ... hang on. I'm using Samba 2.0.7 as a PDC for WinNT clients.
What you need to do is create machine accounts for the NT clients, on the
samba machine (see the docs on the web site for how to do it) ... then
create user accounts on the samba machine, then set your NT client to
connect to your domain (whatever domain you decided in your smb.conf) and
I haven't checked win2k, but am about to.
