      I am using Samba as a PDC with Windows XP clients. Everything
      seems to work ok (except for some bugs not related to this)
      except that none of the clients sees anything in the domain
      (Entire Network\DOMAIN). All computers/shares are accessible
      when brwosing \\computer. This is not the case when not using
      Samba as PDC.


      This is my configfile:

        workgroup = NETBUS
        netbios name = SERVER
        server string = Samba %v
        interfaces = eth0
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        smb passwd file = /usr/local/samba/lib/smbpasswd
        username level = 5
        unix password sync = Yes
        log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.%m
        large readwrite = Yes
        announce version = 5
        read size = 65535
        socket options = IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY
        load printers = No
        domain admin group = root
        add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 100 -s /bin/false -M %u
        logon script = netlogon.cmd
        logon drive = Z:
        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 64
        preferred master = True
        domain master = True
        wins support = Yes
#        valid chars = This is something that doens't work right...
        admin users = root admin administrator

        path = /home/samba_profiles/netlogon
        write list = root
        browseable = No

        comment = Home Directories
        path = /home/samba_profiles/%u
        read only = No
        browseable = No
