If your adding a new user, why not (as root):
(1) useradd username
(2) passwd username
(type the password)
(3) smbpasswd -a username
(type same password)
If you already have the unix account for the user, just do step (3) above,
then samba will be happy. Also, if you use the same username/password in
windows, authentication is automatic..
