That was it.  Thanks.  Once you pointed me in the right direction, I remembered
seeing that in the docs when I originally set up Samba.  I hadn't bothered to
set up encrypted passwords before since this is strictly an internal network. 
Now I have a minor problem where it doesn't seem to want to accept null
passwords, but that's something that I can live with.  It really just means
that my computer-illiterate wife will have to type in a password now.

Thanks again.

Some days you are the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
