[Samba] 'net view' test isn't working

When I try step #8 (diagnosis.txt), it says

C:\net view \\testsrv

Error 86: The specified network password is not correct. Type the correct
password, or contact your network administrator for more information.

The other steps work up to this point.  Any suggestions as to why we get
this?  I'll also this again...does ANYONE know if it's possible to set up
Samba, where we ONLY authenticate at the NT-PDC and as long as their
username/password are valid, they can map to whatever shares are valid for
their particular workgroup, as defined in the smb.conf?  We're trying to
avoid creating a matching username/password at the Unix O/S level.  Thanks
for any help.
