[Samba] Denied access in XP, OS X works.

As far as I know the username and password used to access samba is the
same you use when u log into Windows (again, I am familiar with W95/98)
If you have roaming users, (we do) install a PDC and use (NT) domain
logon. The user profiles are then stored on the samba. That works pretty
good in W95/98. I think XP is a little different.

PDC is a little daunting task, but it's not that difficult. I tried it
at home first.
On the samba side, it's very easy. Use SWAT and 
domain logons yes
os level 65
preferred master yes
local master yes
domain master yes

If you have encrypted password, you can even put a logon script into the
samba server that automatically maps the drive and provides time to the
Windows box.
