[Samba] Access from one box but denied from the other

You do not specify "encrypt passwords = yes" in your smb.conf file 
so my guess is that your working Machine has had the plaintext
password registry fix added and the other machines have not.

Either change samba to use encrypted passwords (don't forget to add
the passwords with smbpasswd command) or apply the registry fix
to the other machines.
