It seems that digging out answers from the SAMBA digest is too tedious so I am
writing you directly. I hope you can help.
Last July 25, you posted a very terse reply in SAMBA digest 1758.

I have a tiny 2-system LAN, laptop-to-NeXT (4.3bsd under OpenStep4.2). On the
laptop in one boot, my NT4 accesses files on my samba-unix box aok. In
another boot, my Win98 shows "shared hosts" but when I try to actually look at
directories and file names, it prompts me for a password. No known password
seems to work even though I use the same 1-2 on both machines. I change
passwords (to the same) with the Win98 control-panel utility, and I still do
not get access to directories and files on the NeXT.
Any clues? Is the problem in my Win98 registry as the above post suggests?
If so, how? What do I change?
Is the problem with my samba.conf? Copy below.
