When trying to attach them mapping to the users home directory a message
box comes up prompting for username and password.  The username is
grayed out showing only guest.  The other shares come through just fine
as to be expected.  The server is running AIX 5.3 using Samba 2.2.7.
Below is the smb.conf file.
