Default Cannot join Samba Domain from XP Prof.

Hi All.
Having followet the "Samba as PDC" HOWTO, I now need to add my Win XP Prof. machines to the domain.

The funny part is, that when trying to join the domain and suppy the username I created during the installation process, I get a message saying "User name not found". If I try with the administrative accoune from the linux box, I get a wrong password.

However, if I try to access \\MYSERVER\myusename (my WinXP boxes are in a workgroup named the same as my domain) and supply the proper username I get access to the home share and the common shares. If I supply a wrong password I get rejected, so the username and the passwords seems to be OK.

I have a couple of users and it is all the same for all of them.

Does anybody have any idea of what I shoiuld do differently?

Thanks in advance,
