You need:

- a Unix account for the computer in /etc/passwd, e.g. xpmachine$ (it's
said that it's possible to add that on the fly too, but I didn't manage

- *no* machine account in smbpasswd

- a setup that enables root to create this machine account from the
client - see htmldocs/Samba-PDC-Howto.html.

Then you change the network settings from "Workgroup: $DIFFERENT_NAME"
to "Domain: $YOURDOMAIN" and choose "create computer account" - I didn't
do it with XP, but the same problem exists with Win2k.
