[Samba] Failed to set gid privileges error in Mac OS X 10.1.5

I am trying to log into a share on Mac OS X 10.1.5 running Samba 3.0.0 (ran
"sudo ./configure" and "gnumake" and "sudo gnumake install"). I have set up
smb.conf through Webmin and SWAT. Windows NT 4.0 sp6a sees the server. I can
open the server through Network Neighborhood and see my share (Projects) and
the Printers share. However, when I try to open the share WinNT gives an
error stating "\\BWG3\Projects: An unexpected network error occurred". I
have set up a username map since my WinNT login name is different from the
Mac login name. I also added a map to root (UNIX=root, Windows=djs), but
that doesn't seem to help.

I searched Google and the samba archives and found two threads, but both
related to Jaguar (10.2). I searched also for Darwin-related topics on this
and found something to try (sudo ./configure), but that didn't help.

Other strange things I see are that I can't run any of the executables
without giving the path to the executables (found in /usr/local/samba/bin
and /usr/local/samba/sbin). SWAT says smbd is not running, yet "sudo ps -U
root" shows that it IS running. nmbd is running.

Any ideas?
