I have encrypt password to yes. I can use smbuseradd but what I end up with is 5 different folders on the Linux box each accessible only by their respective machines, such as:
johns computer \\john\johns-files
marys computer \\mary\mary-files
freds computer \\fred\fred-files
I want to be able to access 1 main folder that all the computers can save files to and copy from them. This particular linux box is just being used a glorified storage device.
With net use, If I try to log into, say, \\mary\mary-files from john's computer, net use (or network neighborhood, for that matter) gives me an error message saying the system isn't logged on.

in smb.conf and then use smbuseradd (i think) to add a user for each box. That's the official approach, but the easiest way i think is to just create a batch file under 98 using 'net use' to log in as who ever you want, the net nieighbourhood is far too much hassle when you can make a foolproof batchfile
