had the same prob and it told me that It couldn't find the domain in wins
(which it shouldn't have needed to cause PDC and client are in the same
So I enabled my samba-PDC's wins-server and pointed the XP-box to it -
problem solved although weird cause this shouldn't have been necessary at
but you know whatever works - don't question windows...
