I have gotten samba to allow an xp client to logon to the domain server
before, my problem now is doing exactly that on a different machine.
I can browse files, but I get an access is denied error upon join.

[2003/01/27 10:46:21, 0]
  api_samr_set_userinfo: Unable to unmarshall SAMR_Q_SET_USERINFO.
[2003/01/27 10:46:21, 2]
  startsmbfilepwent_internal: unable to open file /var/db/samba/smbpasswd.
Error was Permission denied
[2003/01/27 10:46:21, 0]
  unable to open passdb database.

That is my error from log file.
I have seen this problem mentioned elsewhere, though i have never seen a
solution, does anyone have any insight?
