The way to add w2k/xp clients is first to run from the command line on
the main server (tjener)
 smbpasswd -a root

then you will have to enter a password. This should not be the same as
the ldap admin password.

Then you should add you clients to the domain by using the root account
with the newly set password when adding to the domain

This should be documented somewhere, but I'm not quite sure were.
