Okay, this makes no sense to me.  Have 3 PCs that aren't on domain and are in a workgroup, all running XP pro.  I go to join them to the domain today, joined the domain fine.  But when i try to log on to them using the usernames i just created in AD for them, it won't let me log in, saying to enter a valid UN/PWD.  but no other PCs at this location are having problems accessing the PDC, and it joined the domain fine?  what could be the problem? never had this issue before

Hmm - when did you create the user?
Can you logon to another system with that user?
Does the user appear in AD?  How many DCs?  Perhaps it hasn't propogated yet?

i figured it out.  becuase my DCs are spread out across the country, i have a different site/subnet for each in ADSS, so i just went into the NTDS settings for all the DC's and forced replication, worked like a charm..thanks for the help
