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.

make sure that you have identical username and password
on Netware and Samba
if password is different use net use R: \\path password_on_samba

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
