Unhappy Cannot join Samba domain.

I am having problems joining a Smba domain. Below is my sb.conf file:
netbios name = DELVES-S
workgroup = DELVES

bind interfaces only = yes
interfaces = eth0

passdb backend = tdbsam

os level = 255

preferred master = yes
domain master = yes
local master = yes

#wins support = yes
#dns proxy = yes
#remote announce =

security = user
admin users = ntadmin
domain logons = yes
logon path = \\%N\profiles\%u
logon drive = M:
logon home = \\home\%u\winprofile
logon script = logon.vbs

path = /home/admin/netlogon
read only = yes
write list = ntadmin

path = /home/samba/profiles
read only = no
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700
I have created a machine trust account and add ntadmin to the smbpasswd file but every time I try to join a domain from a Win2K machine I get the following message:

"The Specified domain either does not exists or coule not be contacted."

Any ideas on why I get this error?
