Subject: [Samba] Samba joins win2k domain but can't authenticate

All I got my samba server to join my win2k domain without any problems.
But if I change the config to read security=domain it prompts the user
for a username and password. If I change it to security=server it does
not prompt for user names. I did some searching in the list came up with
a few emails and this website
http://www.sugoi.org/bits/index.php?bit_id=10 but still no change. In
the /etc/host file I put the pdc name and address and made sure I could
ping it by name. Using Freebsd 4.7 and Samba 2.2.6. I have rebooted the
client and the PDC and also stopped and started samba a few times. Any
help would be appreciated, and thank you for even taking the time to
read my post.
