	Could you ask it on samba at, please?
	samba-technical is about internal implementations issues...

	Of course, having said that, the authentication 
	errrors look as if the web server didn't have
	permission to read the files Samba provided.

	Do the Unix permissions on the files
	include read for "other" (eg, 755)? If not, the
	account IIS is running from may not have
	permission to read.

	The "logon type" message is mildly puzzling, but may
	simply indicate that the account IIS is being run from
	does not correspond to a known user on Samba.  You
	may need to put in a Unix account for IIS to use.
