samba NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE...Help please


ive been breaking my head over this since the past week, i have a network of 6 pcs at home and im trying to set up a file server in fedora 3. now the problem is i can see the server on all the pcs. but the linux box isnt acccepting the password, my samba conf file is....

[global]

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = WORKGROUP

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = Samba Server
obey pam restrictions = no
# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page
hosts allow = 192.168.0. 192.168.0. 127.

# This option tells cups that the data has already been rasterized
cups options = raw

# Uncomment this if you want a guest account, you must add this to /etc/passwd
# otherwise the user "nobody" is used
guest account = pcguest

# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
max log size = 50


#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
idmap uid = 16777216-33554431
idmap gid = 16777216-33554431
template shell = /bin/false
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
winbind use default domain = no
[homes]
comment = Home Directories
browseable = yes
writeable = yes


[downloads]
path = /mnt/downloads
valid users = nik
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes

[stuff]
path = /mnt/stuff
valid users = nik
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes

[tempdrive]
path = /mnt/tempdrive
valid users = nik
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes

now the thing is....doing the smbclient -L server doesnt let me log in at all..... using the password for root or for the samba users that i have defined using the.....in the windows boxes....ive used only one password for all users that i have created yet i cant log in.....any help please? thanks for ur time

this is my smbusers file
root = administrator admin
nobody = guest pcguest smbguest
nik = nik
n1k = n1k

Remove the user from smbpasswd database & try to again adding the user

smbpasswd -a username

iptables service should be off

Thx
