after many hours of tries,  I am still stuck with a simple: I have Samba 3.0.1 ore running fine on a red hat 9.0 box (installed from RPM) when I try to  join a domain I get the infamous invalid user name or bad password error from the Win2K SP2 machines. I am really getting lost here, I have checked the root password in smbpasswd database and have used the smbpasswd command, I still get that error.
Any help would be greatly appreciated....
this is my smb.conf as given by testparm
