[ ]  	 I am trying to add a Windows XP Professional workstation to my
network.  I am currently running Samba 2.2.2 on a Linux server and have
Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 Pro workstations on the network.  Everything
appears to work ok all  the way through adding the XP Pro workstation to the
domain but when I try to log in I get the following error:

> 	Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain
> controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer
> account was not found. Please try again later and contact your system
> administrator [ ]  .  
> 	Unfortunately, that system administrator is me and I've tried
> everything I can think of.  It just doesn't make sense because it adds the
> computer to the domain and then I can't login to the domain.  If I log in
> locally to the XP Pro workstation as administrator I can see the network
> work and login to the server. When logged in locally I can even map a
> network drive to a Samba share. 
> 	Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as I have not tried to
> use an XP Pro workstation before with Samba and I don't even know if it
> should work.
