If I understand you correctly you are entering your unix passwords when 
prompted and they are being refused. The reason that it will not take the 
passwords is probably because you have not setup a samba user these are 
separate from the unix accounts on the system. To add a samba user you can 
use the command "smbadduser". 

If you have already done this and it still isn't working please send the 
general portion of your smb.conf file along with the share definition.

Hope this helps you,
