For some reason, people on this list don't reply *to the
list* - so as much as I appreciate the seven direct replies
I've received, this *is quite inefficient.

Maybe I am just unaware of some strange rules governing
SAMBA mailing lists? :)

Some additional info on my questions in-line.

For the archives, I found this with Google:

	# $FreeBSD: src/usr.sbin/adduser/adduser.perl,v
	# 2001/04/23 06:55:24 dougb Exp $
	# addcomputer is a hacked version of adduser
	# specifically designed to add computer accounts
	# that work with Samba.  Modified By Joseph Olt

It works great.  Thanks to everyone who replied.  :)

Guess it doesn't work so well over VPN connections?  I read
something about this and tried with another computer that
was on the LAN - it got further [XP Machine] -  joined the
domain, but after reboot I am unable to login to domain.  As
another user commented, there was no noticeable delay
between clicking button and the error appearing.  SignOrSeal
requirement turned off.

I searched and searched and kept finding other people having
this problem... but not a single answer.

Any ideas?
