I am not sure how to advise you here. What you are saying is that all the
HOWTO document information is wrong _or_ you have found a bug in Samba.

Well, any or all of that could be true.

I guess that by now you have carefully followed the information in the
Samba-HOWTO-Collection chapters on "Domain Control" and on "Domain
Membership." And if you follwo the instructions and information there, it
does not work.

I understand you to say that if you go against the information there, then
you can log onto Windows XP Professional.

All I can say is, this is totally perplexing!

What I would like to see is a detailed step-by-step list of EXACTLY
everything you have done to help me to reproduce your problem.

Please email this to me off-list. I'll try to help you, because my
conscience can not bear knowning that otherwise you might go mad. :)
