[Samba] Multi OS boot and shared secret trouble

We are facing a boring trouble with multi OB boot machines
that access to our samba server.

All machines authenticate to samba PDC ( linux debian etch + windows )

It appears when machines windows's bootup the shared secret is changed
by windows

if we reboot the same machine under Linux it cannot authenticate
anymore because Linux does NOT change the shared secret ...

The machines have the same hostname/IP address with Linux and Windows ...

Anyone knows a workaround/option ?
