smbclient and passwords

Hi all.  I'm using samba-1.9.17p1-4.i386.rpm on Linux 2.0.31, with NT 4.0
workstations, without the SP3 patch.

Using "smbclient '\\APPS\TMP' -U steve" I can connect to the samba server,
as steve, but the password always fails.

On the NT 4.0 workstation box I seem to have the same results.  I can
browse the available list of shares, but can't use any but the ones that
don't require any password.

Can someone tell me why?  How was that RPM compiled?  Was it compiled with
shadow support?  I have tried both ways, but can't get either to work..

I'm really looking forward to hearing from someone who has gotten this to
work..  It wasn't this difficult the last time I did this..
