Create users in Samba

Dear Friends,

I am new to linux. We have Mandrake Linux 10.0 Official Release. I installed it and it works fine. I am now to create samba users. I created already unix users. What command I have to use for creating Samba users? Is there anyway I can maintain a sync between these Samba and Unix systems?

Please let me know and let me know if any other way.

Thanks in Advance,

on the box where the samba server is look for a command called "smbpasswd". if you run it as root you can add users and specify their password. runin' it as user will prompt you for a new user.
