Double check to make sure that your computers have the same "workgroup" name and can ping eachother,
also, check directory permissions.

Check out webmin (www.webmin.com),

it will not only help to manage your samba quite nicely, but other aspects of linux too.

-yes it does ping

-if i do a net view with my m$ box it doesn't see it... It seems normal since it coul'd join my samba domain home.local

-i didn't get any error with testparm

-it doesn't resolve it's own name, if i ping sbmserv, i've got an unknown host.

- if i type hostname i have a dhcppc1 reply but my smb.conf as a line :
netbios name = smbserver

Yes, it is a XP Pro
No, it is there with a $ sign and no password

I just try to overwrite it but it doesn't change anything...

I don't get it!
I tought that a PDC was a domain controller controling a 'domain...' I tought i could get it to resolve domain name and get away from WINS.

Can someone clarifies this for me please

I am fallowing carefully an HOWTO and it seem that i have the isolated the problem a bit
Where it seems to be the problem is something in the fallowing lines that i don't get it... I didn't put anything in those directory, do i have to do anything in Win-profile? %U.bat? \netlogon?

[GLOBAL]
logon home = \\%L\%U\Win-profile
logon drive = s:

logon script = %U.bat
logon path = \\%L\profiles\\%a\%U

[NETLOGON]
path = \home\netlogon
create mask = 0644
directory mask = 0755

[PROFILES]
path = /home/profiles
read only =No
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700

Samba is working because i do have a login window when i try to join the domain.local, it doesn't resolve the name and the password. This is there i stand so far

logon home = \\%L\%U\Win-profile
shoud that line be:
logon home = \\%L\home\%U\Win-profile

also should i create that Win-profile directory or file under each user?

If so, that does go in?

# only if you have more than one eth and only want trusted users
# interfaces = <ip trusted> localhost
hosts allow = 192.168.0.
;hosts deny = 10.25.0.1
;add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -g samba -d /dev/null -s /dev/null -M %u

# path for save WinNT/Win2k profiles
logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U

# path for save Win95/98/ME profiles
logon home = \\%L\%U\.profiles

# unit letter for users directory
logon drive = M:
