Actually, i figured it out. This was caused by having the netbios name and
workgroup name to the same value. That might be a good bit of info to add to
the documentation somewhere. Thanks for the help.

Try turning on encryption in samba. Win98, Win2k send encrypted passwords.
I believe its put under global and is either encryption = yes or true.  Been
awhile so I'm not sure of the syntax but you should be able to find it.
Shows up under swat too i believe if you use it.

Subject: Domain Logon error

	I'm new to the samba scene and am having difficulties setting up a machine
to authenticate domain logons for Win98 boxes. Details are as follows:
I originally set this up and had it working great on a redhat 7.0 box that i
used as a test machine. Just recently I was content enough with the package
and its functionality (and my knowledge of how it works) to install it on
our SCO OpenServer 5.0.5 box. I am using essentially the same smb.conf file
as was working with the linux box (with paths, etc. changed accordingly).
smbd and nmbd start fine, and the machine's shares show up and are
browseable in network neighborhood. However, when i try to do a domain
logon, Win98 immediately comes back with an error that says "Incorrect
Parameter" (Thanks to M$ for their very helpful error messages), and the
following shows up in smb.log:

[2000/10/11 09:11:45, 1] smbd/reply.c:reply_sesssetup_and_X(925)
   Rejecting user 'nikko' : authentication failed

I'm fairly sure my smbpasswd file is set up correctly, and i ran
"smbpasswd -e nikko" just to make sure, but still nothing. Am I missing
something simple here? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
