WIN2K joining Samba PDC

I'm having problems joining my samba PDC from win2k.  I did the adduser
machinename$ then did the smbpasswd -a -m machinename.  I added root to the
smbpasswd by typing smbpasswd -a root and I gave it the same password at teh
UNIX password.  Now when I try to join the domain from WIN2k I am using the
root username and password (And they are correct) but it's saying  unknown
user name or bad password.  Any ideas?

Here is my smb.conf file.


smb passwd file = /usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd
domain master = yes
printing = bsd
encrypt passwords = yes
logon path = \\%N\profiles\%U
min passwd length = 6
wins support = true
printcap name = /etc/printcap
logon script = scripts\%U.bat
security = user
domain logons = yes
workgroup = SNA
server string = Samba Server
local master = yes
log file = /var/log/samba/log/%m.log
netbios name = LINUXSVR
load printers = yes
logon drive = I:
os level = 64
default = netlogon
logon home = \\%N\%U

comment = Network Logon Service
path = /usr/local/samba/lib/netlogon
writeable = no
write list = root

path = /export/smb/ntprofile
browseable = yes
writeable = yes
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700

comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
readonly = no
available = yes
public = no
only user = no
