[Samba] How does WinXP pass username/password?:

I have a small network that includes two Linux computers and one Windows
XP Pro computer.
I'm trying to get share my Linux resources properly with the Windows
computer. If I set it for share level security and set a user name for
each share, along with guest ok, then I can get in as whichever user
I've set... even root.
I've tried a few scenarios with a basic smb.conf and I have plenty of
log output when --debuglevel=2, but I thought it would be more than
everyone would want to see on this list. The workgroup of the Windows
XP computer is "HOME". The user name and password I use on the Windows
XP computer is the same as an account on the Linux computer.
The log entry which looks most meaningful to me says
NT_STATUS_WRONG_PASSWORD. So, that makes me wonder what NT is passing,
even when I type the password.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
workgroup = HOME
security = user
read only = No
guest ok = No
comment = temporary files
path = /tmp
read only = yes
