I don't claim to be a samba expert. But, if I remember correctly the last time a buddy of mine was having problems with it he had to create a user on both machines with the same password and then everything worked fine.
You may give it a spin and see what happens.
Also make sure that the linux domain and windows workgroup are the same.

When its ask for authentication, which username and password are you trying ? Is it the one which you configured on server or your local host username and password.
Whenever you share something, to give access to your you need to create samba user.
/usr/bin/smbpasswd -a username password
Let us know if it works.bigunix.blogspot.com
