I believe this could be a question of encrypted passwords. By default NT4
SP3 and above does not allow logins to servers with un-encrypted
passwords. Either setup the server to support encrypted passwords or apply
the correct registry changes.

You should have a NT4_PlainPassword.reg with your samba sources.

We did this by setting up encrypted support instead, so I don't know if
the reg works (and I don't remember if this was the exact error message).
