w2k w/ samba pdc - can't find domain

Ok, I have a Redhat 8.1 with samba configured to be a primary domain controller providing user authentication and access to shares.  Most of these boxes (90%) are win98, and they work just fine.  The problem is when I attempt to use windows 2000 (SP2).  If I attempt to join the domain, it asks for a valid user/password of the domain, then proceeds to tell me that 'The account used is a computer account.  Use your global user account or local user account to access this server.'

What is this and how do i fix it?

Does your Windows 2000 workstation have the same network name as the user ID you're trying to connect as?

did you add the win2k's computername to Samba's passwd (/etc/passwd or whatever you use)?
There is a doc about this in the Samba distribution, or simply go to http://www.samba.org/ -> Documentation

Yeah - seems that I needed to add the computer as a trusted machine.  I added it and now everything works great!
