Hi .. I think, samba checks clear-text logins against /etc/passwd , and
encrypted logins agains smbpasswd. It should be possible to have both at the
same time, but your have to be carefull not to get your passwords out of
sync (passswd chat, sync password, .. should help)

win95(all versions), wfw3.11, nt(all version i think) support encrypted
passwords - I'm not sure about os/s
