[Samba] Cannot join XP client to SAMBA PDC

I have been trying all day to get my XP clients to join a domain on a SAMBA 
PDC.  I'm running SAMBA 2.2.3a on FreeBSD-4.2-Release.  I have the registry 
fix installed, hand entered machine accounts in my /etc/passwd file, 
associated machine accounts in the smbpasswd file, and a "domain admin 
group" entry in my smb.conf.

When I try to join an XP box, I type in the username and password of a user 
in the domain admin group and I get an error box saying "access 
denied".  This is in my log.smbd:

[2002/04/09 15:13:50, 0] rpc_server/srv_samr.c:api_samr_set_userinfo(670)
   api_samr_set_userinfo: Unable to unmarshall SAMR_Q_SET_USERINFO.
[2002/04/09 15:13:50, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:pdb_getsampwrid(1416)
   unable to open passdb database.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
