If you haven't done it previously, run "smbpasswd -a" as root.
Otherwise there will not be any password for you in smbpasswd, and you'll
never be able to update it.
smbpasswd with the -a option adds a new account, the account must
already exist in /etc/passwd.  Read the man page for smbpasswd for
more info.
