NT4.0 SP3 needs encrypted passwords, and SAMBA v 1.9.16p11 did not support

You have two possibilities:

Prefered, you update to Samba 1.9.18pXX, and enable encrypted passwords as
descriped in the DOC files ( ENCRYPTION.txt and WinNT.txt )

The other possibility is on the NT machine:

Run regedt32.exe and locate the hive key entry:

Add the following value:

This will enable plaintext passwords on the NT box.
