Samba can deal with encrypted passwords just fine, so why not let it ??
Otherwise, if you insist on using plain-text passwords, you'll have
to apply a "patch" to every Win95 (OSR2) and higher box, including
Win98/98SE, ME, and NT boxes. Enabling encrypted passwords with Samba
involves changing *one* setting on *one* box.
