After you did the reg keys you would've rebooted its the reboot that
might've fixed the problem.

My usual cycle
add reg keys 
add workgroup
add domain
log onto local machine not domain.
add whatever domain users to local administrator group.
log on and test
I am sure that 1 or 2 of those reboots can be replaced by net use * /del
but with windows rebooting just feels ---- safer :) and a lot easier in
the long run.

I gave up on that. My next samba project is ldap. I have a working ldap
address book for evolution, it would be nice to have ldap for
authentication as well.

While where on the subject of Windows update. Microsoft is giving away
free update CDs. Everyone should get one. Even if you don't use M$ you
should get it and give it to a friend.
Has all the update for win 98/me 2K/XP up till October 2003

I got mine about a week later.
