Logging in [Samba]

Im having troubles to login to my debian from my WinXP comp
I can see it in networks , I try to login but my user/pass dont work!

I set security = user
and passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u

So I should be able to login with my linux user "test"
I tried multiply accounts none works

you need to setup samba users first
smbpasswd -a %user%

make the password the same as the windows user/password
