[Samba] Joining WinXp to Samba PDC

Thanks, but I'm a bit confused. Where did Administrator come from?
Is it a built in account in Samba, and whats the default password?
I've tried using Administrator with no password ( and with my root
password), but it keeps saying :

Unknown username or bad password

any other samba account I try just return :

The specified user does not exist

Any help appreciated

it's Administrator
(which you may want to map to root with smbusers)
