The 'windows PW' were not ..! Do you mean the local pw stored on Win95/98 ?
If so, samba has no chance to mess with that (nor should it).

The two passwds that samba plays with are in:

1. /etc/passwd (/etc/shadow etc)
2. /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd

The system does work but it involves some 'tuning' on your part. The
problems is that samba fails to change /etc/passwd it usually does not know
why. So it tells the WinNT (we are talking about WinNT or W2K arn't we ?)
that things went wrong, don't know what and WinNT tells the user that its
their fault.
