Re: Samba Issue
When I run into this at home, it usually lets me autheticate from Windows as the Linux machine owner, have you tried logging in with the user id and password of the Linux machine doing the sharing?
Other possiblity is that you may have to tweak the Windows machine trying to access the share. Which version of Windows is the client machine using?
I've only even had to troubleshoot this on Ubuntu with Windows machines on the same LAN... but this may be enough to get you going.

I have tried using a different username, including root, some other accounts, etc. I can see the server's shares when I type in \\I.P.Add.ress and look at it.
I'm coming from Windows Server 2008.
