[Samba] Password problem

Hi folks,

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?
