It works fine for me - you are just uusing this to connect to shares on
the Smaba box ? Not doing anything complex like using it as a domain

I have 'encrypt opasswords = yes' set in the config file, and then I add
accounts using 'smbpasswd -a'. All works fine - and I just duplicated
the cnfig here at work for a collection of Windows machines and that
works too (including CUPS support which is very nice).

As a last resort, if you only have one windows box, then tell samba to
use the windows box to authenticate the passwords...
