[Samba] Problem logging on to successfully joined domain

I'm running Debian Sarge's "Samba 2.2.3a-14" and already successfully
joined the Win2k-client (SP3) to the Samba-PDC-domain.

Nevertheless, I can't logon to the domain, getting the error-message:
 "The system cannot log you on to this domain because the system's
 computer account in its primary domain is missing or the password on
 that account is incorrect."

It seems, the password-fields in smbpasswd the client's machine-account
are not changed when joining the domain.
(I joined the domain using the Samba-"root"-user, smbpasswd says it has
UID 0.)

Restarting "nmbd -d 4" and "smbd -d 4" and trying to logon (though I
don't know what to look for actually):

  Allowed connection from thistle
  Null passwords not allowed.
  authorise_login: ACCEPTED: guest account and guest ok (nobody).

A lot of times the following logs:
  change_to_user: Skipping user change - already user. [...]
  Found policy hnd[1] [...]
  free_pipe_context: destroying talloc pool of size 0[...]

Ending with
  thistlew ( closed connection to service IPC$
  Yielding connection to IPC$ [...]
  receive_smb error (Success) exiting [...]
  Closing connections
  Yielding connection to 
  Server exit(normal exit)

Any idea what's wrong here?

Thanks in advance!

This is no computer, this is my archenemy!
