Problems with samba

I am using my linux box to form an nt domain through the use of samba. i've been at it for some time, now, and have made progress, but not accomplished what i want it to do. i am out of ideas, as well.

i got the linux box to be seen through network neighborhood. the only account that can logg into it, however, is root. it created a directory for root, just like it was supposed to. although root can logg in, it can not provide the password to bring the windows box over to the domain. when i type in root as the user and the password, it gives me "unknown user name or bad password" i know the password is correct.

i created an administrator password and tried to use it. it will do one of two things :

if i give it a password, it will say "unknown user name or password"

if i don't give it a password, it will say "access denied"

if i use root as the user, it gives me unknown user name or password either way.

what is going on here?
