[Samba] Problems with FC4 Samba 3.0.23a and Windows XP PRO 2002

Hello all!

I have just upgraded a system that previously had SAMBA running on an SCO
Unix server with various flavors of Window clients.... XP, 98, ME, Media,
2000, etc.

I was using plain text passwords and USER authentication.

I upgraded the server to a FC4 Box with SAMBA 3.0.23a

All of the clients reconnected to their shares/printers EXCEPT the Windows
XP PRO 2002 clients (2).

The log files for samba show:

[2006/09/12 11:40:24, 0] auth/pampass.c:smb_pam_passcheck(810)
  smb_pam_passcheck: PAM: smb_pam_auth failed - Rejecting User graham !

I am confused as to why these two machines are asking for (getting)
smb_pam_auth when I am using plain text passwords....

Any help out there?

Thanks for any thoughts....
