Hi All!

Maybe some guru can help me....

I have set up SAMBA server with encrypted passwords.
After adding a new user with smbpasswd as a root, the new user can
properly connect from his PC (win98) to SAMBA server, use shares and
BUT! When user tries to change password with smbpasswd, he gets:

mark at saule:~ (258) smbpasswd
Old SMB password:
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
machine rejected the password change: Error was : The
specified password is invalid.
Failed to change password for mark
mark at saule:~ (259)

What's the problem??
