This is regarding the password and logging in article on Nov 3rd.
I guess you can update this because I was able to successful logon from a wimp2k box.
All I did was
enable encrypted passwords.
smbpasswd <username>

and voila!

There have been many questions regarding the Samba login process. I found something very interesting in the mailing list archives. For those interested in the full text, the original archive entry is available. The following is an extract from that entry:
Windows 98 and NT4(SP3) _require_ encrypted passwords from the server. There are two possible solutions:

- Enable encrypted passwords in Samba. This is the best solution if the Samba server is being accessed by a WinNT boxes, or a mixture of Win95/Win98/WinNT clients. However, password encryption in samba requires another password file (/usr/local/private/smbpasswd), which you would create, populate and maintain.
