I am running Linux 2.2.12-14 and samba 2.0.6 rpms.
My password changing works, and this is the samba.conf that I use.
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1)
# Date: 2000/06/19 15:22:20
# Global parameters
workgroup = C_P_PLATING
server string = Samba 2.0.6 Server
encrypt passwords = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *password* %n\n *password* %n\n *updated*
password level = 3
username level = 3
unix password sync = Yes
Is this O.K.?

Has anyone tuned this "passwd chat =" line yet? From reading the docs I
this is what it seems to say also, but it doesn't help and say for a
NT workstation this is what it's expecting. With as good as Oriely
I cannot believe that the authors didn't include at least one good
this. Does anyone have one they would care to share of changing a samba
password from a Windows NT Workstation?
