Credentials problem.

I have set up a samba server 2.2.2 on Redhat 7.1. I have set it up as
the PDC and have several Win2k clients I wish to join the domain. Now I
am having the error message "The credentials supplied conflict with the
existing credentials." I have seen in other posts that I should use the
IP address of the samba server instead of the domain name, but that
comes back with an error that the domain could not be found or is

I have gone through DIAGNOSIS.txt and still no luck.  Basically, I can
access the share from the Win2k machine  if it is set to workgroup. If
it goes to domain, I get the error.

The only reason I want to do domain login is so I can run a global login
script to map drive letters to anyone who logs onto the server. If
there's a way to do that globally on the win2k machines without joining
the domain, I'm all for that as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
