[Samba] ltsp winbindd and kernels

Hi all, I'm a new samba junkie.

I just installed samba and tried to configure winbind so that I can share
my NT domain users on a Linux terminal system-- I'm not quite finished
yet, however, i noticed that since I installed and configured my smb.conf,
started the winbindd, etc., my terminals stopped working.  Nobody on the
LTSP list has replied yet, and I'm on a deadline to get this working.  I
followed the instructions in the how-to at:

Does anybody here know of anything I might have changed to mess up TFTP on
my machine? (my terminals freeze at 'loading vmlinuz....'; the point where
I believe they usually are downloading the kernel)

I can log into the local root account without problems....But something I
changed since Monday morning when I started all this, is preventing my
terminals from finishing the boot process-- and I'm thinking it had to do
with me and Samba.  I'm running Red Hat 7.2, and NT4.0 Server on the win
machine...  I'm stumped, any ideas before I mess things up further?

Thank you

--------- /etc/nsswitch.conf ---------
passwd: files winbind
shadow: files
group: files winbind

-----added the following lines to smb.conf global---

winbind seperator = +
winbind uid = 10000-20000
winbind gid = 10000-20000
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
template homedir = /home/winnt/%D/%U
template shell = /bin/bash
