	As it works with Win95, but not NT, it
looks like you may have a Lanman password in your
smbpasswd file (the first encrypted entry), but
not an NT password (the second).

Check that the field for this user contains both
the lanman hash and the NT hash (for details on
these look in docs/ENCRYPTION.txt).

Hope this helps,

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
