Yes - and also include in your smb.conf:

	encrypt passwords = yes

Yes, if you installed from the source distribution.
If running a binary distribution (.rpm, .deb, etc.), including
bundled versions that come with the OS installation, then
smbpasswd may be found elsewhere, perhaps in /etc/samba.

In any case, you can look in the smbpasswd file (it's ASCII text)
to make sure the users have entries in it.

Wendi, if this doesn't fix it for you, please include your smb.conf
in an email, so we can check your configuration a bit more deeply.
