Hi all

We've now got Win 2000 server and professional on site and I need help
on 2 areas:

1> I need to enable the client to authenticate against our Samba
fileserver until we bringing Win2000 server on line as the PDC, but when
joining the domain I get an error message saying "Cannot connect to the
domain - the procedure is out of range"

2> I will soon need to authenticate against the Win2000 server running
dhcp, but still need to run the samba file server (with static IP
address)and as I understand it, the windows machine needs to use the
same passwords as Linux.  Is there anything else I need to do?

I have Samba 2.0.7 installed (Network Neighbourhood still says 2.0.5a
but log.smb says 2.0.7 has been started)
