NT SAM authentication.

I have a few questions reguarding SAM authentication.
I am set up to use TEXT only and authenticate correctly when the
password is listed explicitly.
When I try to set the password to "WINNT" , I can never get
authenticated. The password is definitely
correct. I thought that maybe I needed to be installed on a PDC so I
did that as well and same results.
I remember reading an older version of the documentation saying that you
needed to add 1024 to the
options registry key; but that is omitted in the documentation that
comes with version 2.2. I was wondering if
anyone has got this working, or if anything needed to be done in
addition to what the documentation says.
Do you need to run in ODBC mode? Does it need to be running as a
service to authenticate through the NT SAM?
If so, does the service need to run as someone special?
