Access denied from NT

I have a problem in accessing samba server from NT
network neighbourhood. I can see the samba server icon
on neighbourhood. But while trying to access then it's
asking for user name & passowrd.

I am not using local user & password from unix box
rather it should be authenticated from NT PDC and
accordingly I have modified the smb.conf file. Here is
the sample of that.

103 flara % more smb.conf

        workgroup = NTPDC1
        netbios name = FLARA
        server string = Samba 2.2.2

        hosts allow = 192.24.206. 127.

        log file = /var/adm/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50

        security = server
        password server = ntpdc1
        encrypt passwords = yes
        null passwords = no
        invalid users = @root, @wheel, @bin, @sys

        load printers = no
        show add printer wizard = no

 socket options = IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY  \

        interfaces =

        local master = no
        os level = 33
        domain master = no
        preferred master = no

        comment = /work/mc
        path = /work/mc
        browseable = yes
        writeable = yes
        public = no

FYI nmbd and smbd started from inetd daemon and
accordingly /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf file
modified. Here is the sample of that

In /etc/services the following lines has been added
netbios-ssn     139/tcp #SMBD services
netbios-ns      137/udp #NMBD services

and on /etc/inetd.conf
netbios-ssn      stream   tcp    nowait  \
root    /usr/local/samba/bin/smbd \
netbios-ns      dgram   udp     wait  \
   root    /usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd

Can anyone has any clue on that?

thanks for your time.
