You have to set the parameter security to domain or server;

security = server --> if you are going to use another samba box to

Security = domain --> if you are going to use a NT box to authenticate

if you use "domain" you have to set "encrypt passwords = yes" and
"password server = your-pdc your-bdc"

I thing that´s all..
