We have Samba installed on a Sun Unix Server.  In mapping through Win95 over a novell network, (Using the command:    #net use R: \\(path to unix server)
A message is appearing in the nwlson dialog box (on two user accounts) indicating "Error 86, the password you specified is not correct".  I can log into the Unix Server with the same two user accounts though.

Are we on the same system? !
Actually what I found is that if you are running it through a Novell Script like me, technically you have not cleared the MS client log on. AFS/SAMBA will authenticate via this route. Switching to log onto windows first or a WinNT domain then logging into Novell (via Network properties) allows the script to map to the server. It works because it now has the MS client info to pass.

command:    #net use R: \\(path to unix server)  will never work.

it should be:
net use R: \\unixserver\sharename
