Have you tried to check that the id are the same. Sometimes what happen is
that the id will be off but one number. Also your user from what os are
they connecting from win95 win98 nt or win2000.

Plus when there trying to access or login , does the the computer ask them
for a user name plus password or does it just ask for the password. I have
samba 7 running fine. My users connect from all the box but I'm having
trouble with some nt .. Plus the machine that there connecting from is just
asking for a password. Let me know if that help you out if not you could
email your smb.conf  to me so I could look at it .

bye Luis
