Hi there,

I set up my samba that it acts as a domain controller,
when i start network neigborhood and click on the linux system and select
netlogon ([NETLOGON] entry in smb.conf)  i first
had the problem with windows 98 that my password always was
wrong. i fixed this with a registry setting (something with plaintext), now
this part works.
Now i configured my windows 98 for using a domain-server, and again i have a
password problem!!
I don't know how to fix it ? (again a registry entry?)
i'm using 1.9.18p8

this is my smb.conf :

workgroup = NOSFERATU
guest account = nobody
serverstring = Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 Hamm
#netbios name = Freesystems
guest ok = yes
printing = bsd
share modes = yes
wins support = yes
domain logons = yes
logon script = login.bat

  path = /home/netlogon
  writeable = no
  guest ok = no

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   read only = yes
   create mode = 0777
