the line must exist. It looks like:

86B3A8B1D8DE8B3C2406A673B37EC063:machine joker:/home/joker:/bin/tcsh

it have to be on a single line, i split it for readability.

to create it, the easy way is:

	1) add a line in /etc/passwd
	the corresponding line to the above is:
	joker$::301:300:machine joker:/home/joker:/bin/tcsh

	2) run smbpasswd as
	smbpasswd -add joker$ joker

	you can remove the line from /etc/passwd.

hope it helps.
