Actually all you need is to set
encrypt passwords = yes
then run smbpasswd -a username
it will ask for a passwd and then ask to confirm it.
Now use that same username to log into a windows machine and try to access
the share it should allow you to do so.
I.e if your win2000 is the pdc then create that same username on it and
use it to log in.
