It uses the system names/passwords...

You need the root password to do anything...

Cool Easy

Try (in a command shell, as root!)

Code:
smbpasswd -a root

Thank you for the reply this should help... Unfortunatly this didn't work. I was able to change the password, but yet it did not change, and still does not let me log into the localhost:901

wierd..

Cool

Gah, sorry for not being able to respond quicker, as the power at my house went out last night, anyway.. I just recalled something, swat isn't necessarily enabled with pam by default, check your /etc/pam.d/samba file, and see to make sure everything is right, also. try doing

Code:
smbpasswd -e root
this enables user root, but isn't necessarily your problem. (it's probably the PAM thing.)

Edit:
Oh yeah, and make sure you compiled with the --with-pam flag.
