Hmm, not much info about the setup.

It works at my client's site.
Samba is using encrypted passwords.
But then it worked before samba was installed on the Unix server.
This NTrigue box has an NFS client and all the accounts were imported
via NIS from the Unix server. The passwords were not imported and all 
the users on NTrigue had to change their password to the same as on 
the Unix machine.

Not much info here ethier but then maybe it will spark an idea.
