Yes, at least I got that much figured out. It appears that samba behaves 
differently when I connect from a domain authenticated windows box and 
one that is not. Those that are not on the domain are getting the userid 
box to fill in. I, on the domain, do not. It still requires them to use 
the samba password instead of the unix password but we are working 
through that for now.
