each samba user must have a password setup. you cant use your regular user
account password from the windows side.

try the command


while logged in the linux box under the name you want to be able to login
remotely from the windows box.

it will ask you for a password, this is the password you enter from the
windows box when you login to the folder you want to get to in samba.

man smbpasswd
