Angry Problems with Samba

I recently configured Samba so I could interface my Linux box with my winblows boxes. My questions is this: On my Windows 2000 box when I goto network neighborhood and browse, I can see the Linux but when I double click on it to view it's contents I recieve the following error: \\pc-name is not accessible: The account is not authorized to log in fom this station.

Anybody have any ideas as to what could be the problem???

The first thing I would do is check smbpasswords.

man smbpasswd
and create smb accounts for each user, match the password on the linux box to the password on the windows box.
