No, in the set up you are using, the user also needs to be a unix user.
You haven't set the workgroup in your smb.conf, so are the rest of your
machines in the workgroup 'WORKGROUP' ? do your users have the same
password as on the machine that they are trying to connect to ? How do
you create the users on the samba server ?
