Samba as a PDC


I have configured samba to be the PDC for the M$ computers on the network. I have W2K server running but not as a PDC. When I try to add the W2K machine to the domain, I get prompted for a username and passwd. I've tried every username and passwd on the smaba machine but none work. Does anyone have any suggestions?

grep -r "2000.*password" /usr/doc/samba-your.version.number/*

sorry, that's as good as it gets since I don't have the problem, errh,
don't have win2k... otherwise I'd offer a walk-through
