Is there a way to let my WinNT 4.0 (standalone) server log on to my linux box?
I'm running linux 2.0.30 with samba 1.9.18
When I tell my WinNT machine to use a domain instead of a workgroup it tells me it can't find a Primary Domain Controler.

Linux cannot serve as a Windows Domain Controller.  Only Windows NT Server can to that.  Linux, however, can share it's file systems with an NT box via SAMBA.  If you configure your linux/samba system to share one of more directories, you can map them from NT.  You will be asked for your linux username and password to connect to the share and should be able to access it from then on as any normal network resource. It cannot and will not provide logon authentication like an NT server.

But I don't want to fill in my username and password everytime I connect to another drive.
Isn't it posible to send the username and password to the linux box at logon time? like with win95?

If you synchronize your NT Workstation login and password with the linux box, NT will try the one you log in locally with provided you have enabled clear text authentication in NT.  See instructions at:
