Oh do I have a good one!

I have a user who like to test things.  I got his Win2K workstation into
a 2.2alpha3 controlled domain by carefully following instructions. i.e.
setting up so that the samba server auto adds the machine account to the
linux password file and to smbpasswd.  No traces of the workstation in
/etc/passwd or smbpasswd.  root used to add the machine account to the
domein.  Too cool and smooth.  He wanted to see how it worked, so he
removed himself from the domain.  Now I can't get him back in to save my
soul!  I keep getting the following message: "The account used is a
computer account. Use your Global user account or local user account to
access this server."

Thanks in advance,

Bruce Ferrell
