    Setting up user and pass for Samba

    I know i have loat of questions.. But i am just tring to pave through this so that i can get a fast a good basic knowledge of Debian. I am progressing very well but every once and awhile i hit bumps like these. For example. How do i set the user and passowrd for Samba when it say all these errors whne i am using "sudo /etc/init.d/samba start" then typing "smbpasswd a-knoppix" then typing the password only to have it tell me that the old password is not correct.. I have tried my root password and also Have tried doing both in root and not in root. I have tried many different names. However. I dont have other users in my Knoppix as of right now. So if i have to add one i will nee dto know how to do that as well so that i can set up samba srever to share with windows.


    Thanks,
