Ok guys

I've been working through this all morning but I'm still not getting the breakthrough.

I'm trying to set up samba on a machine at work. Eventually I'll be calling on winbind and active directory to do all the authentication
but seeing as I'm no expert with samba I thought I'd go through it slowly and learn it from the ground up. I can see my shares in my network places and if I make them public I have no problem accessing them. THe problem comes when I try to authenticate a user via smbpasswd. I've put my users and passwords in the smbpasswd file(via CLI), i've set security in smbpasswd to users and I've made those users with passwords "valid users" but when I try to get into the shares I get a message saying that I might not have permission to use this network resouce.

I cant really find anything else on the net to help me out with this but i would like to get it going.

I'm using SuSE 10.3. Here are the relevant parts of my smb.conf file.

[global]
workgroup = OBELISK
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
cups options = raw
map to guest = Bad User
include = /etc/samba/dhcp.conf
logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile
logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
logon drive = P:
domain master = No
security = user
usershare max shares = 100
domain logons = No
netbios name = hercules
password server = *
passdb backend = smbpasswd



[lxuser]
comment = lxuser docs
inherit acls = Yes
path = /home/lxuser/
read only = No
valid users = lxuser

Any ideas anybody?
