Richard - thought I highlighted the fact here that even though I'm aware
this isn't the TNG list; I want an end result of a PDC for XP machines.
This includes getting Samba (non-TNG) actually working.

Richard -: regarding error messages in log files, I'd get absolutely none.
The XP machines can join the domain, (as 2K clients can), but on reboot,
trying to logon just comes up with the "domain controller may be down, or
invalid username/password" dialog.  2K would run perfectly.  Its like XP
isn't even talking to the Samba box properly.  (In non-PDC mode, they can
talk perfectly).

I heard something today about XP having quite a high OS level - is it
possible this could stop XP from properly talking to Samba?
