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.

It seems that the problem is more basic than that aiguartua...
I did install webmin and i am reading the HOWTO link
again i ended up bugging here:
"22. Open up a virtual terminal if you're running X windows or log into your Samba Server if you're running Webmin remotely. Type in: “smbpasswd” username where username is a valid user on your samba server. You'll be prompted for a password and to re-authenticate the password by retyping it. It's recommended that you use the same password that you would to log into the server to keep things easier to manage, but it isn't necessary. Running “smbpasswd” will create an authentication file for Samba to check when you log in to the server from a Windows computer. "
i try creating a brand new unix user and convert user into samba user: I see the users it looks ok but when i try smbpasswd (username) i get :
Failed to find entry for user x
Failed to modify password entry for user x
ok, for create machine trust accounts:
(note: you can add a group uf machines: groupadd something)
1.- /usr/sbin/useradd -g something -d /dev/null -c "machine nickname" -s /bin/false machine_name$
2.- passwd -l machine_name$ (is lower case L not 1)
3.- smbpasswd -a -m machine_name
for create user account:
1.- useradd -g some -c "user name" -s /sbin/nologin user
2.- passwd user
3.- smbpasswd user
I am presently trying the /usr/share/doc/samba-version/docs/textdocs/DIAGNOSIS.txt and fallowing the steps, i should be able to do smbclient -L (server name) from the server and get a list of shares...
i might have a clue here...
i have a reply after it did asked for a password:
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
