Well hey, every file server I've set up for testing or any other
purposes in the past year or so has been connected to a Windows
system that was using encrypted passwords, so I had to make sure
to enable password encryption on the Samba host.

It would have been one step *simpler* if Samba had password
encryption turned on by default!  And more secure, too.
