Hi folks,

I'm trying to setup a primary domain controller using samba and netbsd. 
Unfortunately, netbsd will not let me add 'machine' account names.  I'm
trying to do:

useradd -g machines -c WINDESKTOP -d /dev/null -s /bin/false 'windesktop$'

It complains about windesktop$ not being a valid login name.  According to
this tutorial I'm using, I have to have a $ after the login name.  This is
just for setting up "trust accounts".  Has anyone else set up a PDC using
netbsd and samba?  if so, I'd be very happy to see some suggestions or
possibly some tricks, especially on how to automate the whole user
administration process :)
