I need to be able to bind to the domain and I have done it before with the
same xp machine.  You are closer than you think!
with sp1 I didn't have to install the signorseal patch either.  just
change the local security policies.

The server is running at root level,  and changes the chmod on smbpasswd
every connect attempt.
I either find a way to force samba to believe that admin is root or i need
to wipe the system and reinstall.  not a favorable option.
