Problem With samba and NT Domain

I am trying to set up my linux box on an NT Domain, I can connect to the NT
servers if I specity my NT Domain password on the command line i.e. 
	smbclient \\SERVER\NETLOGON -uid%password 
but if I just do a 
	smbclient \\SERVER\NETLOGON 
then enter my password when requested it gets rejected.  

Also I have shares on my linux samba box but when I try to connect to the linux
box using my NT workstation box, i get the following error on the NT box
	\\Linux1 is not accessible
	An unexpected network error occured.

And the linux box produces the following errors,
	[2000/01/11 10:18:12, 0] lib/util_sec.c:assert_gid(70)
	  Failed to set gid privileges to (-1,1000) now set to (0,0) uid=(0,0)
	[2000/01/11 10:18:12, 0] lib/util.c:smb_panic(2456)
	  PANIC: failed to set gid

Does anyone have any ideas what the problem might be?  I have attached my
smb.conf file.

; /etc/smb.conf
; Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux
; Please see the manual page for smb.conf for detailed description of
;	every parameter.

   printing = bsd
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes
   guest account = nobody
   invalid users = root

; "security = user" is always a good idea. This will require a Unix account
;	in this server for every user accessing the server.
;  security = user
   security = server
   password server = stfn0001

; Change this for the workgroup your Samba server will part of
  workgroup = EASAMS

   server string = %h server (Samba %v)

; If you want Samba to log though syslog only then set the following
;	parameter to 'yes'. Please note that logging through syslog in
;	Samba is still experimental.
   syslog only = no

; We want Samba to log a minimum amount of information to syslog. Everything
;	should go to /var/log/{smb,nmb} instead. If you want to log through
;	syslog you should set the following parameter to something higher.
   syslog = 0;

; This socket options really speed up Samba under Linux, according to my
;	own tests.

; Passwords are encrypted by default. This way the latest Windows 95 and NT
;	clients can connect to the Samba server with no problems.
   encrypt passwords = yes

; It's always a good idea to use a WINS server. If you want this server
;	to be the WINS server for your network change the following parameter
;	to "yes". Otherwise leave it as "no" and specify your WINS server
; 	below (note: only one Samba server can be the WINS server).
;	Read BROWSING.txt for more details.
   wins support = no

; If this server is not the WINS server then specify who is it and uncomment
;	next line.
   wins server =

; Please read BROWSING.txt and set the next four parameters according
;	to your network setup. There is no valid default so they are commented
;	out.
;   os level = 0
;   domain master = no
;   local master = no
;   preferred master = no

; What naming service and in what order should we use to resolve host names
;	to IP addresses
   name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast

; This will prevent nmbd to search for NetBIOS names through DNS.
   dns proxy = no

; Name mangling options

   preserve case = yes
   short preserve case = yes

; This boolean parameter controlls whether Samba attempts to sync. the Unix
;	password with the SMB password when the encrypted SMB password in the
;	/etc/samba/smbpasswd file is changed.
   unix password sync = false

; For Unix password sync. to work on a Debian GNU/Linux system, the following
;	parameters must be set (thanks to Culus for pointing this out):
   passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
   passwd chat = *New\spassword:* %n\n *Re-enter\snew\spassword:* %n\n *Password\schanged.* .

; The following parameter is useful only if you have the linpopup package
;	installed. The samba maintainer and the linpopup maintainer are
;	working to ease installation and configuration of linpopup and samba.
   message command = /bin/sh -c '/usr/bin/linpopup "%f" "%m" %s; rm %s' &

; The default maximum log file size is 5 MBytes. That's too big so this
;	next parameter sets it to 1 MByte. Currently, Samba rotates log
;	files (/var/log/{smb,nmb} in Debian) when these files reach 1000 KBytes.
;	A better solution would be to have Samba rotate the log file upon
;	reception of a signal, but for now on, we have to live with this.
   max log size = 1000

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no

; By default, the home directories are exported read only. Change next
;	parameter to "no" if you want to be able to write to them.
   read only = yes

; File creation mask is set to 0700 for security reasons. If you want to
;	create files with group=rw permissions, set next parameter to 0775.
   create mask = 0700

; Directory creation mask is set to 0700 for security reasons. If you want to
;	create dirs. with group=rw permissions, set next parameter to 0775.
   directory mask = 0700

   comment = All Printers
   browseable = no
   path = /tmp
   printable = yes
   public = no
   writable = no
   create mode = 0700

; A sample share for sharing your CD-ROM with others.
;   comment = Samba server's CD-ROM
;   writable = no
;   locking = no
;   path = /cdrom
;   public = yes
; The next two parameters show how to auto-mount a CD-ROM when the
;	cdrom share is accesed. For this to work /etc/fstab must contain
;	an entry like this:
;       /dev/scd0   /cdrom  iso9660 defaults,noauto,ro,user   0 0
; The CD-ROM gets unmounted automatically after the connection to the

;   postexec = /bin/umount /cdrom

   comment = temporary files
   path = /tmp
