Ok I think I found my problem.  In the global of smb.conf I had wins
support:no but when I change it and restart samba I get this message "Access
control violation : /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start failed"  and nmbd won't start
either.  What am I doing wrong??

I think you need to have the line:
encrypt passwords = Yes
in the global section of smb.conf.
