Sounds familiair. After a two-day fight with samba servers, NT
workstations, NT servers and win95 clients we finally found a config that
will serve all of these...

Compile the latest samba so it has the correct libaries for dealing with
NT encrypted passwords.
*Don't* set encrypt passwords = yes (otherwise some win95 clients can't
get in).
Do use smbpasswd to set passwords for people.

So far (fingers crossed) this works for us and lets users locally and
remote access our servers.
