to fix ur problem, u can try these procedure :

1. assign a unix group to domain admin group to ur config and turn log level
higher than 3.
2. assign a unix user that belongs to domain admin group in unix
3. change ur workgroup name in ur win2000 to other name if ur domain name is
same as workgroup name
4. join to domain in win2000 with ur user that belongs to domain admin group
5. try to read samba log file, u may require to change the premission of the
smpasswd file
6. if can't , try to reboot ur machine and join to domain again.

I have faced the same problem of "The procedure number is out of range", "The
credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials.".
I have tried to fix it according the above procedure.
