Did you assign an smbpasswd (via smbpasswd -a <username> or in swat)?

If this ins't it, you may want to up logging (log level = 3 should be
enough) and take a look at the logs ...

If you didn't, this should not have worked .. since you are using
encrypted passwords ...

Do the usernames/passwords match (the smbpasswd password).
