[Samba] No option for username when logging in.

Our Debian 3.01 file server, running Samba 3.0.0 is setup for guest
access to all of the shares. Now I want to add one username, that is a
private share for payroll. I added the username 'pam' with adduser,
and configured smb.conf, see below.
path = /home/pam
comment = Private
valid users = pam
writeable = yes
username level = 3
Do I need to do anything to the smbusers file?
When I try to access that share, I'm not able to enter a username.
It's defaulting to guest, and prompting for a password. Actually, it's
doing this for all shares. When I first set this up a few weeks back,
I was being prompted for a password, but I could never connect
successfully, so I left it alone. (Currently searching the archived
logs for an answer.)
Would it be easier to just make a password-protected directory in one
of the existing guest shares?
Thanks in advance for any input.
