[Samba] PDC: Problems making the win2k client join domain

I am having problems making the client win2k machine join the domain . My Samba PDC is configured as follows :

1>added trust account to the smbpasswd file (account to the win2k machine name).
2>set the global admin parameter to "student" (student acnt exists on smb server)

Client is configured as follows :
1>user 'student' has been created .

Problem :
When I change the option of workgroup to domain , the Win2k client is able to recognize the domain but it is giving problems authenticating the usename/passwwd . Which username/passwd am i supposed to give here . The manual that the samba administrative usrname/passwd should be given here   , is this the global admin parameter = "student" usrname/passwd earlier set in the samba PDC or is it something else ? I`m using Samba 2.2.3a .The error message shown is 'unknown username or bad password'.

Thank You ,
