primary domain controller question


I am setting up a PDC on redhat 7.2

smb.conf

[global]

;basic server settings
workgroup = domainname

this is what the smb.conf looks like

i cant get my XP machine to accept the domainname domain in windows. It just says it cant be contacted
What else could be affecting me not being able to use the domain??? This is really annoying coz it was working

Gotta change security to domain as well
