[Samba] Trouble connecting to Samba from win2k3

I have a windows 2003 domain with a 2way trust to a NT 4.0 domain.  I have 
successfully added the samba machine to the windows 2003 domain (using net 
ads join)  however, I cannot connect to it with with win2003 credentials. 
When I run wbinfo -u it retrieves all the accounts from the NT domain but 
not the 2003 domain.  I am new to Samba so I am not sure where to go next. 
The machine shows up in network neighborhood browser but ask for user name 
and password and will not accept anything I give it from 2003 domain or nt 
domain.  I did map a local unix group to win2k3 group and added the 
permissions to share but this did not work either.  Below is my samba 
config.  I am using samba 3.04 on a SUSE 9.1 machine.  Any help/suggestions 
would be greatly appreciated.
