I can seethe Linux box in the network neighbourhood(Win 98) and my network places in (Win XP) but when try to access resources gets the message - The Network Passsword in INCORRECT ( in Win 98) and nothing happens (in  Win XP)when click on ok after providing username and password in Connect to Linux dialog  box. However the same password WORKS when connects thro' TELNET , FTP etc to the same linux box.

Have you created SMB auth info for each Linux user with smbpasswd? Since the encryption mech's are different it is necessary to use smbpasswd in order for a windows box to access a Samba share.

I suspect that the Samba version on 7.2 is too old for XP/2K, but w95/95/NT should work.

Are the usernames and passwords of the users on the windows boxes the same as the ones on the linux box? For example if user "paul" is logged into win98 but is trying to access samba shares using the username "john" it wont work even if he supplies johns password.
