    I'm trying to Join a windows workgroup.
    Here is the command i use. the password is correct.

    Unable to join domain WIN2K.
    [root@gameboy samba]#
    The Win2k server is called win2k, the workgroup is called "workgroup"
    Could anyone point me at the right direction ?
    TIA !

    Have you started your Samba server as well on your Linux? If not, please do so. And last, is your Win2K server an AD-controller? If so, is it in mixed mode since AD functionality in Samba is kind of still in Beta status.
