Have you created a machine account for the NT workstation from which you
are attempting to log in?  I can't recall the exact symptoms that happen
if you haven't, but Samba needs machine accounts for NT in addition to
user accounts.

Pardon the fuzzy memory; it's been a few months since I added an NT
machine to a Samba domain.
