I am in the process of setting up samba as a PDC for a mixed computer lab of WINXP boxes and WIN2k boxes.  The winxp boxes aren't having a problem, but the winnt/2k ones are causing trouble.  They will join the domain okay and log in fine.  After reboot however, they will no longer allow a user to log in and will say unable to log in because the domain COMPUTERS is not available.
