[Techtalk] Samba/Windows question

This is probably mostly a Windows question. I set up Samba on our home
network, so I can listen to our music when I'm working in Photoshop.
I followed Carla's instructions from her Cookbook, (many thanks) and it
worked great. My husband hardened our server, so I added a samba
account for me and everything was again cool. Until I rebooted Windows
When I try to open the music share I get this:
\\Centurion\music is not accessible. You might not have permission to
use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to
find out if you have access permissions.
Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.
Grr. Once in a blue moon, it will actually ask me for username and
password, and when it does, I have tunes again. I found an online
reference that said to change the registry to not save passwords. I did
this, and it worked once.
I've searched online for an answer, but no luck. Some sites tell me I
can't do this at all with XP Home.
Any help appreciated,
