I've googled and read, and haven't run across any solutions to this 
problem. Yes, I know about the "Network Security: LAN Manager 
authentication level" change, but, as you will see, this isn't the 

Samba 3.4.7
Windows 7

Windows machine is on a domain. Samba box is *not* on a domain.

Windows insists on adding the domain to the user name when browsing to 
Samba machine. Saving credentials and editing in Credential Manager 
kind of works, and the Samba share will open once the password is 
entered yet another time (don't know why)but it only saves it until 

Adding the samba host/user/pass in Generic Credentials doesn't seem to 
make windows use that user/pass for that host.  Ideas?

Oh, and using 'net use...' with the Samba system's user/pass works just 
GREAT, and we may resort to that, but were trying to avoid it.

Any other tricks I can do? So users can easily log in from the GUI?
