Still haveing problems
I read the articles on the WIndows patch that messed up the chaging of 
passwords... I have since downloaded the latest stable version (3.0.4) and 
set it up, everything works perfectly except for changing passwords.  When a 
user from an XP machine goes to change his/her password, they get the error 
"You do not have permission to change your password"
Here is a copy of my SMB.conf file
    workgroup = KOSTERTEST
    netbios name = TESTSERVER1
    server string = Kosters Test Server
    password server = 
    passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    max log size = 50
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    add user script = /usr/sbin/adduser -s /bin/bash %u
    add machine script = /usr/sbin/adduser -d /dev/null -g machines -s 
/bin/false -M %u
    logon script = netlogon.bat
    logon path = 
    logon drive = H:
    domain logons = Yes
    os level = 32
    domain master = Yes
    dns proxy = No
    ldap ssl = no
    printer admin = @adm
    encrypt passwords = yes
    comment = All Printers
    path = /var/spool/samba
    create mask = 0700
    guest ok = Yes
    printable = Yes
    browseable = No
    path = /var/lib/samba/printers
    write list = @adm, root
    inherit permissions = Yes
    guest ok = Yes
    comment = PDF Generator (only valid users)
    path = /var/tmp
    printable = Yes
    comment = NetLogon Share
    path = /home/netlogon
    read only = No
    locking = No
    path = /home/profiles
    read only = No
    create mask = 0600
    browseable = No
    comment = Sales Folder
    path = /home/sales
    username = @sales
    valid users = @sales
    read only = No
    browseable = No
    comment = Customer Service Folder
    path = /home/cs
    username = @cs
    valid users = @cs
    read only = No
    browseable = No
Is the error really permissions based? if so how to I change the users 
permissions so they can change their paswords???
