Trouble logging into Linux server from a Windows 7 machine

I am having problems logging into my SME Linux server from a new Windows 7 machine. It sees the server on the network, but does not seem to be passing the windows login through to the Linux server (which is how all of the XP machines log in). When I try to log in using a valid username and password it goes nowhere and just says it is an invalid username and/or password. I had a Vista machine that could log into this Linux server so I do not think the Samba version is the problem.

The default file sharing for windows changed in 7 and I'm assuming this is what you're talking about when you say 'logging into the linux machine'. There are already several well written articles on google about it. If you're talking about logging in via, say, ssh that's a completely different issue.
