[Samba] Problem with Samba 2.2.6 as PDC

Hi All,

I recently set up Samba as the PDC of my domain, which consists of 
3 boxes, two running Windows XP Pro and one running RedHat Linux 8.0.  
Everything works fine with one of the XP boxes, and I can logon to the 
domain with it.  However, on the other XP box, it joins the domain fine, 
then, after it restarts, when I go to logon to the domain I get:

"Could not connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is 
down, or because the computer account does not exist."

I have created the unix computer account by hand.  Here is what shows up 
in the logfile for the machine:

[2002/10/25 20:25:35, 0] rpc_server/srv_samr.c:api_samr_set_userinfo(670)·
  api_samr_set_userinfo: Unable to unmarshall SAMR_Q_SET_USERINFO.·

This gets written to the log when I join the domain with the computer.  

Does anyone know what might cause this to happen?  Any help would be
