Setting up SCO OpenServer 5.0.7 with Samba 2.2.6 to host a share for Windows 2003 Server

I am attempting to set up my SCO OpenServer 5.0.7 to share one of its folders with a Windows Server as a mapped drive via Samba. I have done this in Linux but usually it was the linux system pulling from the Windows system and my Samba was a newer version. 2.2.6 was the last SCO release of Samba supported by OpenServer 5.0.7. I have gotten to the point where my Windows systems can see the SCO box in Network Places but it is unable to connect, returning the error, "The account is not authorized to log in from this station." I have disabled the encryption, changed the group policy to send unencrypted passwords to 3rd party SMB, set NTLM levels to minimum, and even enabled encryption in smb.conf. I am tearing my hair out here. Does anyone have access to a setup guide for connecting such an old version of SCO to server 2003 via samba? Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.
