[Samba] Samba as a domain controller

Have come across a weird problem and wondered if anyone had any bright 

Have been using Samba to get a Win2K computer to log on to a domain of which 
Samba is the domain master. This has worked fine for ages as it domain 
authenticates and loads up the individual user share.

However, for some reason, when I log into the Win2K, it comes up with no 
user preferences, no shares and loops around an error saying "there was an 
error in explorer.exe". This makes it OS unuseable and I have to log off 

Thought it might be Win2K but using the computers own domain works fine with 
no problems at all.

The computer is acting like it almost cannot find the domain master and yet 
was able to join the domain successfully consistently.

Any help much appreciated....
