You either did not setup the machine's account manually on the samba server,
or you did not specify a add user script
or the add user scripted failed to work correctly.

NT, 2K, and XP machines need their own machine account on the samba server,
as well as the user's account who will be logging on.

My recomendation is to add the add user script and not worry about things anymore.
You can find an example in the smb.conf man page.
