Wierd Samba log-in problems

Alright here Is my setup. My network has about 40 PCs mostly windows. My goal was to set up a samba share (on FreeBSD if that makes a difference) that is pretty much public to everyone. The network is run under a 2000 server Domain. In 98, 2000, 2000 server, and OS X my shared PC shows up in the network neighborhood/My network places. When you click on the machine it asks for a password. Here is where it is goofy

From 98 there is no way at all to get on

on 2000 and 2000 server you can get on, but only if you are logged onto the local machine. If you log on to the 2000 domain it says the username and/or password are wrong.

On OS X it works perfectly (although I do not know of this OS X box is loggin on to the domain or not)

I really don't care how secure this share it, it would be nice if it had some security, but Its not a must. Here is my smb.conf file (the stuff with #'s next to them mean I have tried a whole lotta ways with that line and it changes nothing) Although while browsing the boards I came accross a "security = share" option which sounds like it may work, but I almost think this is the deed of 2000 servers domain config, not my box.

workgroup = domainname
netbios name = samba
encrypt passwords = yes
server string = FreeBSD drive
#security = DOMAIN

path = /share
#read only = no
browseable = yes
public = yes
#user = @clients

(I added all the users under the clients group...however I did this with adduser, not with samba, and again: I don't care about security with this too much)
