Sounds like you need to add to your smb.conf file [globals] section,
'encrypt password = Yes'. Then for each user on your network run:

	smbpasswd -a 'user_name'

Also, have you updated samba to a near recent version?
If not, you could try to contact Ron Record <rr at sco.com> and ask him for
help getting up to date. Ron handles SCO Skunkware.

Let me know how this goes. I will try to help you.
