Hm, it seems to be working now...
I've added the following to smb.conf on the server:
"map untrusted to domain = yes"
restarted samba, tried - it wouldn't work. Removed that line, restarted
again, tried again, now it works...
Also, domain should be noted in lowercase.
Don't know what fixed it ...
Also if you have hidden share (with $ at the end of the name), you
shouldn't escape it in /etc/fstab or in automount maps.
