Can't logon to Samba PDC

I am using:
FreeBSD 4.2
Windows 2000 SP1
I have installed Samba and configured it the way the PDC-HOWTO describes.  I
have created the users and machines in the /etc/passwd and smbpasswd,
configured the smb.conf file, and started the daemons.  I have successfully
joined the domain.

When I try to logon using an account that is in both the /etc/passwd and
smbpasswd, I get an error message that the user account doesn't exist in the
domain [or some derivative of that].  When I try to add the users, using the
account manager, I can see them in the domain but can't add them.  I get the
The user could not be added because the following error has occurred:
The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
