read the howto
if you still can't get it running post 
a more detailed message 
with your smb.conf file and excerpts of the logs
showing a machine failing to log in.

things to try:
make sure name resolution is working (ie wins is configured on clients)
apply signorseal reg fix to clients if they're at sp2+
make sure your machine account is created on the server (ending in $)
