when i was trying to add (join) windows xp
client(gari$) to samba pdc by using samba adminuser
and passwd ,i got the error invalid username.In
serverside log file(/var/log/samba/gari.loh) it shows
gari$ invalid username.i am using samba 3.0.10 and
RHEL4 as samba server.my configuration file is here

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You
should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the
options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable
options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a #
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will
use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file
that you
# may wish to enable
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run
the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic
#======================= Global Settings

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
   workgroup = example.com 

# server string is the equivalent of the NT
Description field
   server string = Samba Server

# This option is important for security. It allows you
to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local
network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class
networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the
syntax see
# the smb.conf man page
;   hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127.

# if you want to automatically load your printer list
# than setting them up individually then you'll need
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes

# It should not be necessary to spell out the print
system type unless
# yours is non-standard. Currently supported print
systems include:
# bsd, sysv, plp, lprng, aix, hpux, qnx
   printing = cups

# This option tells cups that the data has already
been rasterized
cups options = raw

# Uncomment this if you want a guest account, you must
add this to /etc/passwd
# otherwise the user "nobody" is used
;  guest account = pcguest

# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each
# that connects
 log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
# all log information in one file
#   log file = /var/log/samba/smbd.log

# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
   max log size = 50

# Security mode. Most people will want user level
security. See
# security_level.txt for details.
   security = user
# Use password server option only with security =
;   password server = <NT-Server-Name>

# Password Level allows matching of _n_ characters of
the password for
# all combinations of upper and lower case.
;  password level = 8
;  username level = 8

# You may wish to use password encryption. Please read
# ENCRYPTION.txt, Win95.txt and WinNT.txt in the Samba
# Do not enable this option unless you have read those
  encrypt passwords = yes
  smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

# The following are needed to allow password changing
from Windows to
# update the Linux system password also.
# NOTE: Use these with 'encrypt passwords' and 'smb
passwd file' above.
# NOTE2: You do NOT need these to allow workstations
to change only
#        the encrypted SMB passwords. They allow the
Unix password
#        to be kept in sync with the SMB password.
;  unix password sync = Yes
;  passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
;  passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n
*ReType*new*UNIX*password* %n\n

# Unix users can map to different SMB User names
;  username map = /etc/samba/smbusers

# Using the following line enables you to customise
your configuration
# on a per machine basis. The %m gets replaced with
the netbios name
# of the machine that is connecting
;   include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.%m

# Most people will find that this option gives better
# See speed.txt and the manual pages for details
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192

# Configure Samba to use multiple interfaces
# If you have multiple network interfaces then you
must list them
# here. See the man page for details.
;   interfaces = 

# Configure remote browse list synchronisation here
#  request announcement to, or browse list sync from:
#	a specific host or from / to a whole subnet (see
;   remote browse sync =
# Cause this host to announce itself to local subnets
;   remote announce =

# Browser Control Options:
# set local master to no if you don't want Samba to
become a master
# browser on your network. Otherwise the normal
election rules apply
   local master = yes

# OS Level determines the precedence of this server in
master browser
# elections. The default value should be reasonable
   os level = 65

# Domain Master specifies Samba to be the Domain
Master Browser. This
# allows Samba to collate browse lists between
subnets. Don't use this
# if you already have a Windows NT domain controller
doing this job
   domain master = yes 

# Preferred Master causes Samba to force a local
browser election on startup
# and gives it a slightly higher chance of winning the
   preferred master = yes

# Enable this if you want Samba to be a domain logon
server for 
# Windows95 workstations. 
   domain logons = yes

# if you enable domain logons then you may want a
per-machine or
# per user logon script
# run a specific logon batch file per workstation
;   logon script = %m.bat
# run a specific logon batch file per username
;   logon script = %U.bat

# Where to store roving profiles (only for Win95 and
#        %L substitutes for this servers netbios name,
%U is username
#        You must uncomment the [Profiles] share below
;   logon path = \\%L\Profiles\%U

# All NetBIOS names must be resolved to IP Addresses
# 'Name Resolve Order' allows the named resolution
mechanism to be specified
# the default order is "host lmhosts wins bcast".
"host" means use the unix
# system gethostbyname() function call that will use
either /etc/hosts OR
# DNS or NIS depending on the settings of
/etc/host.config, /etc/nsswitch.conf
# and the /etc/resolv.conf file. "host" therefore is
system configuration
# dependant. This parameter is most often of use to
prevent DNS lookups
# in order to resolve NetBIOS names to IP Addresses.
Use with care!
# The example below excludes use of name resolution
for machines that are NOT
# on the local network segment
# - OR - are not deliberately to be known via lmhosts
or via WINS.
 name resolve order = wins lmhosts bcast

# Windows Internet Name Serving Support Section:
# WINS Support - Tells the NMBD component of Samba to
enable it's WINS Server
   wins support = yes

# WINS Server - Tells the NMBD components of Samba to
be a WINS Client
#	Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS
Client, but NOT both
;   wins server = w.x.y.z

# WINS Proxy - Tells Samba to answer name resolution
queries on
# behalf of a non WINS capable client, for this to
work there must be
# at least one	WINS Server on the network. The default
is NO.
;   wins proxy = yes

# DNS Proxy - tells Samba whether or not to try to
resolve NetBIOS names
# via DNS nslookups. The built-in default for versions
1.9.17 is yes,
# this has been changed in version 1.9.18 to no.
   dns proxy = no 

# Case Preservation can be handy - system default is
# NOTE: These can be set on a per share basis
