Yes I have read the latest HOWTO, I didn't realize you would need a 
add user script for win2000, I was under the impression win2k would
make entries in /etc/passwd and sambapasswd automatically, I didn't 
realize it required the script for 2k.  

So I tried adding the entry manually now I get a "The procedure number is
out of range." error.

below is the entry in my smbpasswd:

suntest(51)% sudo cat /samba/private/smbpasswd
# Samba SMB password file
pctest$:506:882D8750941D0A28D109DED161091DFE:4D76E00AC502B4F367A64E700A775FE0:[W          ]:LCT-3AEF1A34:

and here is the entry in my /etc/passwd:


My samba server is a sun ultra 10 running solaris 8
