[Samba] Password problem

My client and I are having a problem getting a portable Esaote
ultrasound machine to connect to a Samba server. The unit has an
integrated laptop with a Windows XP version that can hardly be
modified. Upon delivery the vendor only changed the user name and
workgroup for us. When I asked for the user password to make a
matching Samba account, the vendor refused because they use a key on a
USB stick for that. They said to fill in a name and password for the
server every time we needed to access the Windows share.
So far I've experimented with the Samba "map to guest" and "guest
account" options, which should work, but I'd really like to see this
machine connect to the Samba server in the usual fashion.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Any workarounds, or hacks that I might try?
