The fact that it's asking for a password at all is unusual. I would guess
that this implies that you haven't setup a valid guest account, but I could
be wrong.

At any rate, if you can't get timesync working with Samba you can always
use NTP. Any number of freely downloadable NTP clients for Windows exist (I
seem to recall having used something called NetDate once in the distant
past), and xntpd or some such package will provide you with an NTP server.
The only problem I'm aware of is that afaik NTP will die in 2038, but at
least you've got some time to prepare yourself :)

Who is this General Failure, and why is he reading my hard disk?
