This may be kind of a dumb question, as it's something I could easily be overlooking, but I'm confused anyways.

My Samba server is part of the MA domain.  However, I want a couple of non-domain accounts to still be able to access Samba shares.  The machines trying to access the shares are Win2k machines, and whenever I try to access the server, it asks me for the username and password.

I had it working before I joined the domain, and it could have been working after I joined it as well, but I honestly don't remember.  Attached is my smb.conf file..  Any ideas?  I'm completely confused.
