What does that value do. Samba after version 2.2 support ntlmv2 authentication so there isn't any need to change vista's exclusive use of ntlmv2.

How is the Samba server configured. In particular, does it use the default "security = user" security model. If so then you won't have a problem. You can't use Vista home or XP home editions with "Security = Domain" or "Security = AD" models.

It works best if you create a user on Linux with the same username/password as your username/password in Vista and then use "smbpasswd" to add a Windows uid in /etc/samba/smbpasswd.

You need to provide more information on what problems you are having and how the Samba server is configured.
