I think your passwd chat is the problem.  In RedHat and Mandrake they 
have this string as two lines in the distributed smb.conf file.  There 
needs to be a space between ...%n\n on the first line and *all*aut... on 
the second (continued line).  I don't know if adding a space at the 
start of the firtst line will fix it or not.  I fixed it by joining the 
first line with the second line and adding the space; i.e.,

...Retype*new*password* %n \n *all*authentication...
