I've tried googling and reinstalling Samba 3.0.2a-3mdk but the problem 
still remains. I can't login in to swat with root account. In 
/var/log/samba/log.swat I see

[2004/06/07 10:57:54, 0] param/loadparm.c:map_parameter(2410)
   Unknown paramater encountered: "character set"

passwd: files nisplus nis winbind

Is this a bug with 3.0.2a? May I ask how can I workaround this?
