Gets better...
In joining to the domain controller, Active directory crashed. The only 
reference I can find is that of using the netdom resetpwd command...only 
problem is this is the only DC on the site. Has any one info on how to 
reset the machine password? And I only assume that is the issue because 
I found some info in an OSx forum about this exact same issue. What is 
the best solution for centralized authentication? AD, NDS, LDAP/SAMBA? I 
have a mixed bag here of 98,win2k,xp,linux,osx. After this latest 
incident, I'm quite temped to over haul the whole thing this summer!
