Damian, can you go into more detail about "my Samba servers won't
authenticate"?  Native Mode should be OK, but you'll need to go into the
built-in groups, and find the "Pre-Windows 2000 Compatibility" (or
something like that) group.  You'll need to add the "Everyone" built-in
group to it.  Just add it like you would add any other group into it.  Once
you've done this, you should be able to authenticate.
