how do you add a machine account in samba? i've already added

man smbpasswd

smbpasswd -m <machine name>
Then vipw to add a "$" before the name. I don't think you can add
the "$" with smbpasswd in FreeBSD. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

It depends on what version of freebsd you are running. I recently committed a change to freebsd-stable so 'pw' will accept userids and groups with a last-character of '$'. That change is also in the freebsd-current branch. 4.8-release will probably be the first official release which will have that change.
