Is the samba acting as a WINS server.  If so do you have:

wins support = Yes
		I don't like WINs! Don't know why .... Perhaps because I'm working on a
mid range Novell network with VLANs!
		I try to do my WINS settings.
Watch these dhcp settings:
option netbios-name-servers;
option netbios-node-type 2;

and is the client (W2k) machine have the correct IP / WINS settings.
		The machine has the right IP-settings. <- DHCP?
Are they on the same subnet?

Is this the first machine you are adding to the domain?
What version of Samba do you have?
What service pack (if any) do you have on the client (W2k) machine?

Hope these infos are OK?
