[Samba] No access to share

Running Debian Etch with Samba-3.0.24 and ldap...
I've set up a few users as part of the admin group and one in the users
group. When I log onto the XP machine they can see their home drives but I
get a command prompt asking for username and password for the server
(usit-file). Not even admin can login though. Even if I log onto the XP
machine as the domain admin I can't access the share.
