Greetings all

I'm running Samba 3.0 on an Ubuntu box as a PDC and I'm having trouble changing 
passwords with XP clients - here's my smb.conf http://pastebin.com/m1bb6d4a6

I've tried the suggestions in this thread, but no luck: 

Any hints? I'd be very grateful for any suggestions anyone has the time to
