Do you have an account (or accounts) for on the samba server for the 
Windows user(s)?  Are the passwords the same?
Does the samba server "workgroup" name match the domain name on the 
windows clients?

Can you use the "username map" option in smb.conf and have a username 
map file that maps "DOMAIN/user" to "user" ?
