I have now added a user and the hash apirs in the passwd... :] but when
I try to log in but it just don't work :/

Can someone give a suggestion?

This is my smb.conf... I guess theres a chance that its where the
problem comes in 2 play :)

        workgroup = Nost
        encrypt passwords = yes
        smb passwd file = /usr/local/private/smbpasswd
        unix password sync = yes
        null passwords = yes
        comment = www
        path = /usr/home/Enigma/share
        public = yes
        writable = yes
        printable = no

Ps -axe |grep Ketil

You'll need to add them as a normal user with the 'useradd' command, and

then add them as a Samba user, with the 'smbpasswd -a username' command.
