SMBPASSWD issue


I am trying to setup SAMBA using Fedora 5 and I am trying to set a smbpasswd but every time I try and do this I get this error message:

PHP Code:
[root@Zeos zor]# smbpasswd
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
Failed to find entry for user root.
Failed to modify password entry for user root 
What gives?

Hmm, why are you trying to set up Samba password for root!?
smbpasswd <user>
smbpasswd -a <user>
