Re: [K12OSN] W2K and samba

OK, I enabled wins and it went further but now it says that the account 
being used to join the domain is a machine account and says to use a 
windows account or a local machine account or something like that. . .

I have W2K machines set up on another server in another building and it 
works fine but this is being a pain!

Thanks again!
