	With "they" you mean "all computers"? Or some particular version?
AFAICT, Win95 does not have crypto passwords, which means that it is not
going to work properly.

	Looks like more a permission problem than a 2003 validation
problem. The idea behind winbindd is share the user list between
servers and, from your description, does not sounds like you need it,
althoght there is not enough information to be sure. :-)

	Did you map users? Which version of Samba are you running? In
which MS Windows versions the problem occurs?

	Hope it helps, kind regards.
