    I can't help you with your problem, but maybe you can help me with mine.

I am running the same version of Samba that you are and I can't get past the encrypted passwords. I've told Samba
to use encrypted passwords and tried turning it off in windows. Neither way works. Do you have any suggestions?

Hello folks,
            I am running Samba 2.2.3a, on a RedHat 7.2 server. So far =
everything seems to be working fine. I can access shares, print from =
Windows clients, but I cannot change the password from the Win98 client. =
When I try, Windows tells me that the old password is incorrect. Here's my =
smb.conf file

# Global parameters
        ;basic server settings

Anyone have any guesses why the password change wouldn't work?=20
