[Samba] Problems with Samba 3.0.1 on a W2k domain

I've installed Samba 3.0.1 and joined it to DTE Domain which is run by a
Windows 2000 server.
I'm using winbind.

I've followed the instructions very carefully in the PDF HOWTO regarding
winbind exception made that SuSE 9.0 doesn't have pam_stack.so
SuSE 9.0 brings a module called pam_smb_auth.so which i presume is the same
Not sure about that though.

Well, i've joined the Samba server to the DTE domain with success with the
"net rpc join -S DTE -U addcomputer".

wbinfo -u and wbinfo -g are ok.

When i start a Windows machine, i can log in the DTE domain successfully
with user gamito.

But, when inside of it, i can't open my (and the others also) home, which is
in /home/gamito. The password is always rejected.
Either with login "gamito" or "DTE/gamito", or "torvalds-dte/DTE/gamito" (my
Windows client".

The only share i can access is "Comum" which is a directory /home/Comum with
permissions 777 in the Samba server.

The log.smbd tells me this:
"[2004/01/16 17:18:33, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(677)
  '/home/DTE/gamito' does not exist or is not a directory, when connecting
to [gamito]"

which is strange, beacause i don't have in the Samba server any
I've tried to created, and then i can go to my home (gamito) without being
asked for the password, but any writing operation is denied.

Any ideas of how to solve this ?
Any help would be appreciated.

I send you my smb.conf

Warm Regards,
Mário Gamito
