I experienced authentication problems with samba on Mandrake 7.2.  Also I
could not get root to authenticate on localhost:901. However, printer and
other shares for which a pw is required worked OK. The problem came with
authenticating login.

I finally rebooted the linux box and everything started to work (sounds
like a Windows trick, doesn't it). Since nothing had changed, I'm at a
loss to explain.

Interestingly, I'm still getting log entries saying that authentication
for blah blah user failed, even though the user can now access all shares
as well as his home directory.

No answer yet, but as soon as I have time I'm going to dig deeper.
