    Samba Prompts for Password everytime


    Dudes,

    Every time I try to access my Linux share from my Windows box, I am prompted for a user name and password. I enter and I'm good to go until I restart the Win box, and then I have to enter the username and password again.

    On my old setup, I only had to enter it once, the first time I used the share, and then I never had to enter it again. I'd like to go back to this setup.

    Any ideas how to do that?
