I just setup Ubuntu and it's updated.

I also installed and setup Samba, shared a folder and set permissions.

From my Windows 7 Pro, I can access the shared folder I created in Ubuntu.  I can even change its content.

From Windows Server 2003, I can't.  I get the following error message:
Login unsuccessful.  ... Be sure your username and password are correct.

Can you please help me?
