I was told this is not the correct way to do it but this was the only way I
could get mine to work for now. I am looking for a better way but till then

Change security = server 
Point server to your WIN pdc / AD
Also you need to modify /etc/passwd and put the usernames in there. If the
users have the same username in UNIX and Windows logon no problem if not you
can add their windows names to /etc/passwd with the same UIDs as their UNIX
Hope this works for you

If someone has anything better please share

Subject: [Samba] authentication dialog box

Hello all,
I have Samba installed on a Solaris 8 system.
When I try to connect from a WIN XP client I get an authentication dialog
box With the user name Guest. Three is no apparent way of changing to
another user. What must I do so that I can login as any valid user?
