I read ilug on web now, so replies getting bit patchy/late. Anyway, could not
see any other mention of the fact that the smb.conf is set to use unencrypted
passwords. Win 98 and Win NT SP 3 (i think) and later all use encrypted
passwords. You can edit their registries to tell them not to, or more likely,
tell samba to use encrypted passwords.
This held me up for ages, not immediately apparent from docs. AFAIK you need
to use smbpass (i think that is the name of the tool, maybe it is smbpasswd)
to allocate the passwords to people (that is how I did it, there may be easier
ways to do it).
Actually as i reread the question, the prob was browsing the nt box from
samba. setting encrypt to yes should sort that out (the smbpass thing is to
let users browse their shares on the linux/samba box).
hope this helps
