Change the domain name to sambadomain. Having the - in the name prevents the
windows machines from joining. I ran into the same problem here.

My domain name is SAMBA-DOMAIN, I can't join it from a
win 2003 machine. Now, if I try to join it from a XP
machine, I am asked to enter a username and password
for a user allowed to join the domain, however, the
info I enter is not accepted!!!
Any idea please?
Note: to manage joining my samba domain from a xp
machine, I had to change a registry key.
