Make sure that your workstations and servers are using the same password 
encryption level.  If you have the NT boxes on LM or NTLM, and the server on 
NTLMv2 only it won't allow you to connect to the domain, also at that level 
you must ensure that netbios is enabled on the server or there is this wierd 
bug that won't let you join new computers.
