Check your /etc/samba/smb.conf file. If it looks like this:
# This boolean parameter controls whether Samba attempts to sync the Unix
# password with the SMB password when the encrypted SMB password in the
# passdb is changed.
unix password sync = yes
Then your passwords will be the same as the system passwords. You may want to edit the smb.conf file and set guest ok=yes for your shares so you don't have to worry about passwords.
IMHO samba is a pain to configure correctly.
