SAMBA Rejects Client XP Login


I am running SUSE Pro 9.1. YaST has helped alot in the setting up of SAMBA. When I try to logon to my samba domain: SUSEDOM, I get the USERID/PASSWORD window. But when I key in the root & password I get a message "Access denied".

Please advise on what I am doing wrong or what I have not yet done. My smb.conf file:

#Start of smb.conf
workgroup = SUSEDOM
interfaces = eth0
bind interfaces only = true
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
printer admin = @ntadmin, root, administrator
map to guest = Bad User
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
server string = Samba Server
add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -c Machine -d /var/lib/nobody -s /bin/false %m$
domain master = yes
domain logons = yes
local master = yes
preferred master = yes
os level = 65
ldap suffix = dc=example,dc=com
load printers = no
passdb backend = smbpasswd

comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
browseable = no
read only = No
guest ok = no
printable = no
comment = All users
path = /home
writeable = Yes
inherit permissions = Yes
veto files = /aquota.user/groups/shares/
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
printable = no
comment = All groups
path = /home/groups
writeable = Yes
inherit permissions = Yes
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
printable = no
;; [pdf]
;; comment = PDF creator
;; path = /var/tmp
;; printable = yes
;; print command = /usr/bin/smbprngenpdf -J '%J' -c %c -s %s -u '%u' -z %z
;; create mask = 0600
;; browseable = yes
;; guest ok = no
;; [printers]
;; comment = All Printers
;; path = /var/tmp
;; printable = yes
;; create mask = 0600
;; browseable = no
;; guest ok = no
comment = Printer Drivers
path = /var/lib/samba/drivers
write list = @ntadmin root
force group = ntadmin
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
printable = no
comment =
path = /home/BizDev
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
printable = no
comment =
path = /home/Sales
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
printable = no
comment =
path = /home/Tech
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
printable = no
#End of smb.conf

Thank you

PS: I had this post on another thread, but there's been no reply for over a week.

Check for extra spaces. When I try and map in XP for some reason I get the access denied if I accidently put a space behind the directory. Found this one when I did a copy and paste for the path.
