Thanks for helping me resolve the problem. It ended up being that I was
matching the case of the accounts on the windows box.
I was creating accounts on the linux box that were identical (case-wise) to
the Linux machine, and samba just couldn't figure it out. When I changed
everything on the Linux box to lower case, I had much better results.
I also disabled SELinux.
Everything works like a charm now!
