Some of you maybe get "account disabled ... " when they try to login at NT4 or
W2K workstations and don't know where this comes from, because they can access the samba server eg. with the same accounts without any problem.
(log.smbd show some unknown errors ...)

The PAM service at my linux box was wrong configured. I used in
/etc/pam.d/samba but it seems to me that I have to install (parameters: md5 shadow) to login at my nt4 box.

Problably this could be documented somewhere, I spend a couple of hours on
this and some others posted the same problems, I hope this helps you ...
