fwiw my smb.conf file looks like this:
# Global parameters
    workgroup = LAN
    netbios name = FBSD
    server string = FreeBSD Samba Server
    encrypt passwords = Yes
    log level = 5
    log file = /var/log/log.%m
    preferred master = Yes
    valid users = Jez munk jezhanco
    admin users = Jez munk jezhanco
    hosts allow = <list of ip addresses here>

    comment = Home Directories
    read only = No

    comment = All
    path = /
    guest account =
    read only = No

    comment = Movies
    path = /mnt/mov
    guest account =
    read only = No
    comment = Data
    path = /mnt/data
    guest account =
    read only = No
    comment = MP3s
    path = /mnt/mp3
    guest account =
    read only = No
    comment = AVG Dev Site
    path = /home/avweb/
    guest account =
    read only = No
# end

I then create passwords using 'smbpasswd user password ' for each of the user's
in the 'valid users' list, started samba and this was enough to allow me
to access shares from my win2k machine (so long as the user/password I
used to login to the win2k machine matched one of the 'valid users' and
the machine was in the LAN workgroup).
