Talking Accessing Linux share from Win 2k box

I cannot access the shares on my Linux box from a Win 2K box. I can access the shares fine from a '98 box. When I try to access the Linux box from the 2K box I get a prompt for username and password but regardless of what I put in, it returns with invalid username.

What do I need to do on the Linux box to allow the 2K box to access it?

Make sure samba is set to use encrypted passwords... windows 98 used plain text passwords by default; 2K and XP use encrypted, which will give you that invalid username error.

Hope that helps!
