Hi all,

After reading the PDC howto, I am still having trouble
getting Windows XP connecting to Samba 2.2.3.

I first added root to smbpasswd with
smbpasswd -a root
and set an appropriate password.  Following that I tried
both methods of creating the machine user account.  Both
manual and letting Samba do it.  I applied the registry
patch to XP, rebooted and tried connecting.  XP stated
something to the effect of a trust relationship to the pdc
could not be established and this line showed up in Samba's

  api_samr_set_userinfo: Unable to unmarshall

I have verified that root can connect to Samba using
smbmount from Linux and the smbpasswd password does work. 
If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate hearing from
