Thanks, much appreciated. You're right, I didn't need winbindd. What I
*did* need to do was to add the machine name as a user on the Samba
useradd -u 10001 -g 300 -d /dev/null -s /bin/false geezer-w2k$
I had previously defined GID 300 as a common group for the Samba
After this, I was able to join the domain from the Windoze workstation
without a problem.
Thanks again for your post.
