Samba Server Problems
Running a fresh install on CentOS 5.5.
Trying to get Samba server setup to authenticate users from a Windows Active Directory that I have setup.
I've succeeded in configuring WinBind so that I can log into the CentOS machine using Windows Active Directory Users, however, whenever I try and browse or map to a Samba file share, I just get an error message:
unknown user name or bad password
Tried connecting from multiple Windows machines, both from domain members and non-domain members.
Also: In addition to being able to log into the server -- via SSH and at the console -- using Active Directory user names and passwords, I can also successfully kinit Active Directory users.

The issue is most probably with your smb.conf file. Successful working of Login and kinit is not confirming about the format of smb.conf;
Pls post your smb.conf, then i will try to rectify ur prob

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the # smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed # here.

a quick look @ ur smb.conf feel like u had missed some values in it...
pls have a look at this example
howtoforge dot com/samba_active_directory
pls change the above "dot" with the actual dot
all the best

Here's what my smb.conf looked like (I went back to the old one, which, while non-functional, still allowed Samba to work...):
