samba as PDC questions?

Hi all
I have samba up and running fine.
I set it up to be a PDC

I was able to join a windows 2000 box to the samba server, (very cool, )
if I try to join a second windows 2000 box, It willnot let me do it,
I got the error messages that user name or password or domain may not exist.
any help please.
