setting up samba...

I have a question about setting up samba.  I have been
trying to setup samba to share a folder using user
authentication via a Windows NT PDC on the college
network.  I setup the password server=* option and
security=domain.  I guess  my question is, what
exactly do I need to do to get file sharing to work
authenticating by user via the pdc?  Here is my
smb.conf file:

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from localhost (
# Date: 2000/06/07 08:20:05

# Global parameters
	workgroup = MALONE
	netbios name = CDVISION
	server string = %h server (Samba %v)
	security = DOMAIN
	encrypt passwords = Yes
	map to guest = Bad User
	password server = *
	passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
	passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n
*Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .
	username map = /etc/samba/
	syslog = 0
	max log size = 1000
	announce as = win95
	shared mem size = 5242880
	load printers = No
	local master = No
	dns proxy = No
	wins server =
	invalid users = root
	valid users = scampbell
	read list = scampbell
	level2 oplocks = Yes

	comment = All Printers
	path = /tmp
	create mask = 0700
	printable = Yes
	browseable = No

	path = /cdtower/cdrom1
	username = scampbell
	admin users = scampbell
	force user = root
	force group = root

	path = /cdtower/cdrom1
	guest ok = Yes
	fake oplocks = Yes
	locking = No

	path = /cdtower/cdrom2
	guest ok = Yes
	fake oplocks = Yes
	locking = No

Any help would be appreciated.  Oh, I am trying to
share cdrom1.  The other two shares are working
because I am allowing anyone to access them.  Does
anyone have any suggestions on tracking down the
problem?  Will samba or the windows clients provide me
w/ info on what is happening?
