I am trying to set up a Samba domain for a windows xp network. I have
followd the instructions regarding setting the /etc/password file to setup
the pc name. The XP machine then connects to the domain ok. However when we
reboot and try to log into the domain the system reports that "Windows
cannot connect to the domain because the domain controller is down or
otherwise inavailable or becuase your computer account was not found."
The domain is ok with win98 boxes.

Please would you send your best advices.
