[Samba] strange trouble with Win2k

I am running Samba 2.2.4 on a Debian machine (2.2.5 is compiling right
now), and I'm experiencing strange problems with Win2k-Clients in a
domain with the Samba-server as PDC.

The clients can join the domain, authenticate users to the Samba server
and access shares, thats o.k. However, they do not seem to believe that
they are in the domain.

If I click on "Network Neigbourhood", there is only "Entire Network",
and if I browse down this list I can get to our domain. But shouldn't
our domain ("SECKLER") appear on the same level as "Entire Network"? Of
course seeing your domain on top level isn't important, but maybe this
is an indication of a general problem - I also have some trouble with

The clients are SP3 now, I think, but the problem was the same without
SP (or was ist SP1?).

Does anybody have an idea, or tips how to find the cause?

TIA, Frank

Ich habe z.Z. nur einmal pro Tag Netzzugang. Daher kommen meine Antworten
