smbpasswd problem

I have a domain set up using Samba 2.0.7. However, none of the users can
login because of the smbpasswd file.  Even after running the 'smbpasswd'
for each user when I added them to the system, it did not add them to
the file. So I just generated one, as described in ENCRYPTION.txt, from
a copy of the /etc/passwd file that had only the users I wanted added in
it. It generated one, but the passwords don't match and I have no idea
what the passwords are.  I believe that I have the shadow passwords
option enabled on the Linux system. What can I do to get the users to
login? The only issue according to log.smb is that it is not finding the
password or the correct password in the smbpasswd file.

Thanks in advance,
