[Samba] Troubles loging into Samba PDC

Hello everybody,
I have been trying to set up a PDC in samba.  As I continue to make what 
I think are advancements I am still nowhere near having things running.  
My problem is as follows:

I have been in the past using Samba as a simple file server on our 
Workgroup and decided that I would convert this server over to being a 
PDC.  After configuring and reconfiguring the smb.conf I managed to get 
things to a point that when I make computer name changes in the 
WindowsXP system control panel to be a member of my newly created domain 
it allows me to log in and connect as root.  However I can not seem to 
get it then to allow any sort of user login to the Domain at all, not 
even as root.  /var/log/messages tells me "unable to authenticate" or 
something along those lines, I have added the machine and the user to 
smbpasswd.  This is what I know to do so far and would greatly 
appreciate any help offered.   I will include a copy of my smb.conf if 
that is any help.

    dns proxy = no
    log level = 2
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

    writeable = yes
    path = /Intertech_Files/accounting
    write list = @accounting
    force directory mode = 0770
        valid users = @accounting
    force create mode = 0770
    public = yes
    create mode = 0770
     directory mode = 0770

    comment = The domain logon service
    path = /Intertech_Files/netlogon
    writable = no
    guest ok = yes

Thank you,
