    Unhappy Samba Win xp Client "the user name could not find username"


    Hello all I am new to samba i have tried setting it up and am happy with how much I have accomplished

    My winXP client knows its a DOMAIN controler and I can connect to it an see the shares but when I try to connect my client to the domain i get "the user name could not be found"

    Here is my SAMB config file

    I have the root user in the samba password file and also have admin mapped to root.
    I am adding the xp client via the computer name change window form the my computer properties section of windows

    Code:
    #
    # Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
    #
    #
    # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
    # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
    # here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which 
    # are not shown in this example
    #
    # Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) 
    # is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
    # for commentary and a ; for parts of the config file that you
    # may wish to enable
    #
    # NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command
    # "testparm" to check that you have not made any basic syntactic 
    # errors. 
    #
    
    #======================= Global Settings =======================
    
    [global]
    
    ## Browsing/Identification ###
    hosts allow = All
    
    # Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of
       workgroup = Galapagos
       netbios name = Darwin
    # server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
       server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
    
    # Windows Internet Name Serving Support Section:
    # WINS Support - Tells the NMBD component of Samba to enable its WINS Server
      wins support = yes

    # Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS Client, but NOT both
    ;   wins server = w.x.y.z
    
    # This will prevent nmbd to search for NetBIOS names through DNS.
    ;   dns proxy = no

    #### Networking ####

    # interface names are normally preferred

    # Only bind to the named interfaces and/or networks; you must use the
    # 'interfaces' option above to use this.
    # It is recommended that you enable this feature if your Samba machine is
    # not protected by a firewall or is a firewall itself.  However, this
    # option cannot handle dynamic or non-broadcast interfaces correctly.

    #### Debugging/Accounting ####
    
    # This tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
    # that connects

    # parameter to 'yes'.

    # We want Samba to log a minimum amount of information to syslog. Everything
    # should go to /var/log/samba/log.{smbd,nmbd} instead. If you want to log
    # through syslog you should set the following parameter to something higher.

    # "security = user" is always a good idea. This will require a Unix account
    # in this server for every user accessing the server. See

    # in the samba-doc package for details.

    # For Unix password sync to work on a Debian GNU/Linux system, the following
