I am a newbie trying to make Samba work in my small home network. I have 
configured SAMBA on the Linux machine (RH 7.2, Enigma) as the Domain PDC.
When I attempt to log on from windows 9.x machine I get either of 
the following error messages. 

2. Your domain password is incorrect or the log on  server has denied access
   to you.
when I test the configuration by typing

1. smbclient -NL //win.9x machine, I get all the shares registered.

2. smbclient -NL //linux server, I get the following error message.

session setup failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password 
pair in a Tree Connect or Session Setup are invalid.). 

When I check the log file the following message is appended to the log.
[2002/02/19 21:15:48, 0] smbd/password.c:server_cryptkey(1117)
password server not available

I am reproducing the global section of smb.conf file below:

workgroup = motherindia.com
server string = Samba Server
hosts allow =  127.
hosts deny  = none
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
printing = lprng
guest account = pcguest
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 5000
security = user
password server = *
password level = 8
Username level = 8

smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
unix password sync = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new*password* %n\n *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.%m
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

os level = 65
domain master = yes

logon path = \\%L\Profiles\%U
domain logons = Yes
unix password sync = Yes
nis homedir = Yes

Where am I going wrong??
