[Samba] User auth problem

Disregard the message from me last week, I wasn't thinking clearly.

Here is my problem, I've got a user, call him USERNAMEX, signing into a
samba drive that is a mounted NT drive.

I'm mapping all of these users to 1 acct on the samba server (using

This users sign into a Windows NT Domain, and all of the users (except
USERNAMEX) have the domain password as their only password.   X has set
a windows password as well - different than his domain password.

Without entering his windows password I succeeded in mapping the drive,
but now he gets a popup saying the password is invalid (weather the
windows password was supplied or not).

Here is a snippet from the log:
[2002/10/07 14:18:33, 3] smbd/reply.c:reply_sesssetup_and_X(868)
[2002/10/07 14:18:33, 3] lib/username.c:map_username(168)
  Mapped user USERNAMEX to guest2
[2002/10/07 14:18:33, 2] smbd/reply.c:reply_sesssetup_and_X(982)
  Defaulting to Lanman password for guest2
[2002/10/07 14:18:33, 2] smbd/password.c:pass_check_smb(575)
  pass_check_smb failed - invalid password for user [guest2]
[2002/10/07 14:18:33, 1] smbd/reply.c:reply_sesssetup_and_X(998)
  Rejecting user 'guest2': authentication failed

I set smbpassword for this user's account and the guest2 account to the
same password he uses for his Window's password.

All the other local users still work.

Any thoughts?

I really appricate the help.
