Hello fellow samba users, I'm trying to setup my samba server on my linux 
box, went through the installation and stuff, but ran into a whole world of 
problems when testing it out (samba2.2.8).  As I'm reading through the 
DIAGNOSIS.txt file included in the docs, I got stuck on Test 7.  when I run 
"smbclient //bigserver/tmp" I get prompted with a password.  when I type in 
my root password (I'm doing all this in root) I get a message saying 
"session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE" . Then I tried with 
"smbclient //bigserver/tmp -Ufred" and typed in the password for fred, I 
still get the same error.  Also I can get to public,"smbclient 
//bigserver/public" if I don't enter any password, but when I try with 
-Ufred and enter the password I get the same error.

my smb.conf

	debug hires timestamp = yes
	debug pid = yes
	debug timestamp = yes
	debug uid = yes
	encrypt passwords = yes
	guest account = smbguest
	hide unreadable = yes

	guest only = yes
	path = /home/public
	read only = no
	veto files = /*.com/*.exe/*.scr/*.dll/*.{*}/

	browseable = yes
	create mode = 0660
	directory mode = 0770
	force group = +users
	path = /home/private

	veto files = /*.com/*.exe/*.scr/*.dll/*.{*}/
	write list = +staff

	path = /home/tmp
	browseable = yes
	writeable = yes

what am I missing here? I'm new to the linux system and samba, so please, 
any help is greatly apreciated.
