Hello Sharief,
I believe this is a WinNT thing, not a samba thing.
Try the following:
get a command prompt window (while you are logged in as yoyo)
then do:
net use x: \\sambaserver\sambashare /USER:sambadomain\yourscounixname
when it asks for password, type in the appropriate password.

See if this gets it for you.
