[Samba] Multiboot and machine trust accounts

I have client running windows 2000 which is part of a domain with a samba 
(2.2.3a) server running as PDC.  Authentication works fine.  On the _same_ 
client I have added a partition that boots into Win XP, it has the same 
machine name.  However I cannot get it to join the domain. I can use 
the  administrator account to look at objects on the pdc, but when I try to 
create a user account I get a failed trust relationships error.

I'm guessing that this is consequence of the win 2000 version changing the 
machine account password from the well know password, so that the Win XP 
version cannot initialise the session key.

Is a win 2000 + XP multiboot configuration workable?

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I've RTFM and used google to search 
for answers without success.
