[Samba] Trouble with User Management

Hi all !
I am trying to setup a Samba 3 server which allows WinXP machines to access directories on a Linux box. So far, I have managed to set upa stand-alone server with a public share which can be read by everybody in the Windows Neighborhood. What I want to do, though, is to have some kind of user management, so that only the person who owns a Linux directory in the share can access it via his or her Windows machine.
Unfortunately, I can´t get it to work : the server asks me for a Username/Password, but won´t accept it. Right now, I am testing my setup with a single directory I want to import to the Windows network. Since both my Windows User and my Linux user have the same username and password (I also created a SMB user with smbpasswd -a...) I don´t understand why Samba should deny my authorization. Neither log.nmbd nor log.smbd show anything about authorization troubles.
My smb.conf :
workgroup = leat
netbios name = nimloth
server string = Nimloth SAMBA Server
security = user
local master = no
encrypt passwords = yes
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
comment = LoraFlox
valid users = leichejo
guest ok = No
path = /net/nimloth/disc1/projekte/loraflox
read only = No
guest ok = No
browseable = Yes
#root = administrator admin
leichejo = leichejo BALIN/leichejo
#nobody = guest pcguest smbguest
Any ideas ? As you might have noticed, I am pretty new to Samba.
Thanks for the help,
