	[Jason Osborne]  make sure this is a nt server account

	[Jason Osborne]  I believe the domain logins option is obselete
(correct me if i'm wrong)

	[Jason Osborne]  wins support = no
	[Jason Osborne]  wins server = [ip address of nt server]

	[Jason Osborne]  for the above option, you'll need to start a wins
server in nt. samba plays well doing it this way. plus, think of it this
way. the nt server is what actually logs everyone on to the domain. it would
better be able to provide wins support because the clients come to it.

	[Jason Osborne]  One other thing you might want to take a look at is
	[Jason Osborne]  Here you will find a lot of help on samba and some
ways to make sure samba itself is running ok
	[Jason Osborne]  And when all else fails, read this entirely.
