[Samba] Domain not available even minutes after workstation startup

Hi all,
I have recently experienced an intermittent problem of getting the error
message of "Domain not available" at initial logon of some XP workstations
connected to a Samba PDC.  The domain does not seems to be available after
some time after initial bootup of the XP workstation, from a minute or two,
to more than 10 minutes sometimes.

Is there anyway to speed up this process?  Thanks!

I have set HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogoncachedlogonscount to 0 to workaround the problem
of having the logon frozen (and folders not being redirected) during initial
logon when the network is not ready.
