Windows 2k and Samba PDC

This is more a Windows 2k problem than a Samba one.
I have set up my samba server as a PDC for ur Win 2k network.
I have a workstation called lift which I have added as follows
useradd -g 100 -d /dev/null -s /bin/false -c "lift" lift$
passwd -l lift$
smbpasswd -a -m lift
I then went to that workstation and joined it to the domain using user root password xxxxxx
it said it joined and would I like to add a user which had access to network services. I answered "don't add a user at this
time" and it finished the network setup wizard.
I then logged out of the administrator account and tried to log back in as user mjs
user mjs exists as a system user as well as in the smbpassword file.
it bumped me off with an invalid user/password warning.
it is as if it isn't authenticating users against the PDC.
Is there anything else under windows 2k that I have to change to get it to authenticate users out of the PDC?
I assume that I don't have to add *all* users to each workstation.
Any assistance here would greatly be appreciated.
