I can't access a RedHat fileserver from my XP PC

Hi all!

I'm new here and I didn't really use linux before. My problem is, there was an admin at the company. I rename it's username and add a new password to it. The Linux fileserver uses Samba. I have an XP PC, which was the admin's mentioned above, and it can't access to the fileserver since I rename the admin's username and password. Can it be the problem, that I did it in graphic mode, not in console? I did it with smbpasswd too, but it isn't working. Do I need to write something in the smb.conf file or something? If I miss to write down something important please ask, but don't swear at me! Thank You!

Is it okay if I overwrite the smb.conf file's "security = server" line to "security = user"? Can this solve the problem?
