        I've been try in vain to get a Windows 2000 Pro workstation to
join my
domain.  I'm someone else can figure out what's going wrong.
        My server (galileo) in running samba 2.2.3a (compiled from the
Red Hat
rawhide samba-2.2.3a-6.src.rpm) on RedHat 7.0.  My workstation
(descartes) is running Red Hat 7.2 (can also boot to Win98SE &
Win2kPro).  I'm running Windows 2000 Pro in VMware
(VMwareWorkstation-3.1.1-1790).  The Win2k machine is called vm-win2k.
        In Windows 2000 Pro I go [Control Panel]->[System]->[Network
Identification]->[Network ID], I check "This computer is part of a
buiness network, and I use it to connect to other computers at work" and
click "next", then check "My company uses a network with a domain" and
click next.  In the "User Account and Domain Information" dialog I
root's username and password and my domain "ETC SERVICES" and click
next.  I then get a message saying "Windows cannot find an account for
your computer on the ETC SERVICES domain."  What am I doing wrong here? 
BTW, I have tried it from non-vmware Windows 2000 Pro and I get the same

Here's my configuration info:

galileo:~ # grep \$: /etc/{passwd,shadow} 

galileo:~ # grep machine /etc/{group,gshadow}
