\\machinename\users is not accessible
The account is not authorized to login form this station.

This sounds like the bug/feature introduced from SP3 onwards. Basically, it
encrypts all the passwords, which fail when checked against the Unix

There are two possible solutions:

1) Use SMB passwords on the unix box (which means you get separate
Samba/Unix passwords)

2) Make a registry change on the NT box

I attach the registry change you need to make, should you want to do this.
