I have several shares setup on a Red Hat Server in Samba.
I made a user called: test and set the password. ( useradd  & passwd)
I attempt to browse the samba shares in xp by going to: '  \\RedhatServerName  ' I get a login prompt.
I input the test account UID and password and hit OK. I get the same login prompt back and no access is given nor are the shares are displayed.

I have attached my smb.conf

I have set and reset the password for the test account.
I have the test account set as a user in smb.conf.
The paths in smd.conf are valid.
I have stopped and started smb.

Hi
Well passwd command would only set the user password for the Linux Shell and not for Samba.

To set a password for the samba user you would need the command
smbpasswd -a %username%

Check for man smbpasswd for more details.

I hope that would help
