Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

May be dumb to ask but you did create the Samba password file and added passwords for your users? Reason I ask is because I have searched quite a few links and the response to that error is usually just that. Here is the commands I used to add my users:
Also found some interesting info if your are running Samba 3.0, pulling straws at this point:
The following issues are known changes in behavior between Samba 2.2 and
Samba 3.0 that may affect certain installations of Samba.
1) When operating as a member of a Windows domain, Samba 2.2 would
map any users authenticated by the remote DC to the 'guest account'
if a uid could not be obtained via the getpwnam() call. Samba 3.0
rejects the connection as NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE. There is no
current work around to re-establish the 2.2 behavior.
You gave me the hint I needed. I re-read the man page on smbpasswd which caused me to check the status of the "Allow null passwords" and it was set to no whereas the smb users were setup with no passwords.
I am using Webadmin to administer Samba 2.2.8. I did try the "Allow null passwords" equal to no with the Samba users setup to use their current passwords, but that did not work, so will have to stick with less security and at last the ability to use the ample disk space on the Linux server.
Yes also set the shares up with writeable = true and no change in behaviour. I am getting the feeling the expertice to answer this might only be found on the Samba mailing list. Seems th esame with my iptables question, mailing list is the next option.
Shame, because linuxquestions used to be good a year ago when I first got into Linux now, a year later, I have not had a single question answered. such is life.
I have the exactly same problem, and i also been looking for the answer for the last couple days but can't find anything and another problem is i can't get the windows to see the linux's share, if u found an answer to this please do not keep it as a secret.

Could this be the reason I cannot now see my shared drives on the linuxbox? What causes this? testparm smb.conf passes without error?
