This posting is made so that others who search for infromation on how to 
configure Samba for username and password caching will find it.

Samba does not control client-side password caching.

Caching of domain logon credentials is a client-side activity. There are 
registry settings on the Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Profesional 
clients that control logon credential caching.

- Click Start >Run >type gpedit.msc
- Check Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local 
Policies\Security Options
- Check "Interactive Logon: Number of Previous Logins To Cache" (if value is 
set to 0 then cached credentials is disabled)

Also check....
- Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon
- Check "Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon" (make sure 
that this is either not configured or disabled)
