I believe you have to have a smbpasswd file if you want to use
user-mode security (the default). If you don't already have one you
will need to create one, and populate it with local entries.
> [root at mail samba]# smbclient '\\Mail\\monkey' -I 127.0.0.1 -Ujohnny
smbclient, a sensible program, allows you to use forward-slashes to
help with shell quoting annoyances (also note that NetBIOS names are
smbclient //mail/monkey -U johnny
The simple solution to your password file thing is just to authenticate
against an NT domain controller, if you already have one anyway.
security = domain
password server = <your domain controller>
