Subject: [Samba] WinXP duplicate computer name problem

I've setup Samba as a PDC and it's working fine. I have one windows xp
machine already joined in the domain and working ok.
But when i tried to add another WinXP machine to the domain, i got the
error: "Could not join domain because the computer name is duplicated on
the network". I don't think those were he exact words, but that's what
it meant. Now, there is NO other computer with that name. In fact, there
is only one computer already in the domain, and they do not have the
same name. What could cause that? I followed the same procedures for
both of them, either in samba (linux) as in WinXP (workstations). I'm
out of ideas here, can anyone help me out?

Thanks a lot,
