Windoze 2K and Samba 2.2 PDC

I'm running RH 7.1 and Samba 2.2.0-20010417 as the PDC.

I have it set up and the Windoze 98 boxes login fine.  The W2K box just
errors with one of two error messages:

The procedure number is out of range
The credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials.

I have followed the instructions in the Using Samba manual as well as the
instruction at:

Windows 2000

1) Logon to the W2k machine as Administrator, go to the Control Panel and
double click on Network and Dialup Connections.
Pull down the Advanced menu and choose Network Identification. Press
Properties .
2) Choose Domain and enter the domain name. Press 'OK'.
3) Now enter a user name and password for a Domain Admin (Who must be root
until a pre-release bug is fixed) and press 'OK'.
4) Wait for the confirmation, reboot when prompted

I'm definitely not a windoze expert so when it asks for the user name and
password in step 3, it says to login as root.  I login as root (on the linux
PDC) and supply the password (which I entered into smbpasswd by smbpasswd -a
root...and so on)  I have also created the machine$ account and it is listed
in the smbpasswd file as well (per the instructions).  Am I missing
something here?  Please help.
