i have successfully managed to add the w2k-client to the domain;
however, i still fail to authenticate against the PDC (both in w2k and NT4)

the error message when trying to login as  a net-user reads:
"Das System konnte Sie nicht bei dieser Domäne anmelden, da das 
Computerkonto des Systems in seiner primären Domäne fehlt oder das 
Kennwort für dieses Computerkonto falsch ist"
("The system could not log you into this domain, since the 
machine-account for this system is missing in the primary domain or the 
password for this machine-account is wrong")

the most interesting thing (for me) is, that this error appears so fast.
i think, that the samba-server is not connected at all.
even the log.nmbd stays very quiet.

i really do not know where to look for ???
