SAMBA Question

I have setup SAMBA, and I can see my linux pc from Windows; but when I try to connect I am asked for a username and password. I use the login credentials from my linux and windows system, but none of them work. I am using Kubuntu. Please assist me in correcting this dilemma. Thanks.
