I think you need to sync your passwords. Here are some lines that I'm
using in my smb.conf that may help...
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *ReType*new*UNIX*password* %n\n *
passwd chat debug = Yes
password level = 1
unix password sync = Yes
This is for a RedHat 5.2 system with shadow passwords and samba-2.0.3.
It took me a while to get the correct password script, so if you have
another OS, try setting debug to 100 and review the log files.
Hope that helps!
