More on Changing Windows Passwords

I am having problems using unix password sync. I am able to change the
smbpassword successfully if unix password sync is turned off. However, when I
turn unix password sync on, I get:
Unable to change the Microsoft Networking Password for the following reason:
on the Windows98 client.
I am using samba 2.0.3 from the samba-2.0.3-19990228 rpm on RedHat 5.2. We
are using encrypted passwords and the client is a Windows98 machine.
I noticed that if unix password sync is turned on, I'm required to give the
full path to all of the programs called. The only program that I can see that
is called is passwd. Since passwd is run as root, I've specified the full
path /usr/bin/passwd and added %u.
I've turned passwd chat debug on, but I am not seeing anything in the log.%m
for the machine that I'm working with. I checked the log.smb as well.
Here's the short version of the smb.conf global from swat:
# Global parameters
