Leave the encypt-password = yes in your smb.conf.  What I would double
check is the smbpasswd file.  Make sure that you have a working user
account added and that there is a password for that account.  You may
want to go so far as to change the password for the account you plan to
use, just to be ceratin that it has a passowrd and that you know that

If you are doing this on a domain (ie - the Samba system is the PDC),
make sure that you have a machine account for the NT server.  Otherwise,
even with a valid user account, you won't be able to log into the
domain.  (However, you should be able to get into a public share.)
