Windows 2000 prompts for password when using unix account on windows 2000 workstation

We are trying to get windows 2000 to map a network drive on our unix box
which is set up with samba. Both win 2000 and the unix have the same account
set up on the share.

We have hacked the registry on the windows 2000 box so it uses plain text
passwords however when we log in and map the drive, it still wants us to
enter the password for the user.

Why is this so??

Is there a hack for this??

We are not using domains. Does this matter?? Do we need to use a PDC to get
around this.
