[Samba] Trouble migrating from plain text to encrypted passwords

I'm looking for some help to migrate from plain text to encrypted passwords.
I'm using smbpasswd for authentication on a FreeBSD 4.9 server with samba
When we set up our server, we had Win95 clients with plain text passwords. As
we introduced Win98 clients, we just kept with the plain text passwords.
Now we are looking at XP clients and enctrypted passwords.
My understanding from everything I've found on this subject is that by setting
update encrypted = Yes and encrypt password = no, I sould be able to migrate
from unencrypted to encrypted passwords.
I've made those settings in swat, logged in on a plain password client & then
set the client to use encrypted passwords and tried to log in again, but the
password is refused.
Here's the Global section of my smb.conf:
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from logger (192.168.0.7)
# Date: 2004/07/08 21:01:49
# Global parameters
workgroup = 3D_RADIO
netbios name = MSGSERVER
server string = Message Server
interfaces = 192.168.0.2/24
update encrypted = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New* %n\r *Retype* %n\r *done*
password level = 1
unix password sync = Yes
log file = /var/log/smblog.%m
max log size = 50
time server = Yes
logon script = %U.bat
logon home = \\%L\%U\.profiles
domain logons = Yes
os level = 33
preferred master = Yes
domain master = Yes
dns proxy = No
wins support = Yes
guest account = onair
create mask = 0764
hosts allow = 192.168.0. 127.
preserve case = No
short preserve case = No
Should this work, or do I have to scrap the smbpasswd file & start again?
Hope someone can help me out!
