w2k and authentication

I'm having some issues with my new flashy 2.2 based PDC. All seems to work
fine with 9x/ME (ugh, I know...) in that they (lusers) can log in using their
existing user-names passwords using domain level logins.
However, when setting up the domain login's on a w2k machine after adding the
machine to all the authentication files and setting up a trust account for the
machine name, I can't for the life of me get it to log me in. I had to setup a
root domain user and get w2k to join the domain using that user but now I
can't login with that user or any other for that matter.

I get the following winblows error:
Your account has been disabled. Please see your system administrator.

Obviously the account hasn't been disabled, but upon trying to login on this
machine I get the following in the smbd logs:

  PAM: Account Validation Failed - Rejecting User!

I'm not sure what exactly is failing, but the UNKNOWN ERROR seems to
winblows'ish for me... I would like to know at least an error # or something
to that effect.
Has anyone else seen this? Any ideas? I'm 1 step away from using w2k inside a
VMware session to do account management of my Samba2.2 PDC!
