Samba tutorial

I followed your tutorial, using
FreeBSD 5.1 the same setup as
you describe.

When I try to access the samba shares
from an NT 4 server, it keeps prompting
for username/password.  None of the 
Primary Domain passwords work.  If I 
access the share from a Win2000 machine
it works beautifully.  Does this have
something to do with password encryption?

Any ideas how to get around this problem ?

thanks,
Darryl
