Horrible problem with SAMBA -- Does Karmic work?

Hi, all --
I have done a clean install of Karmic on my file server and am tearing
my hair out. I'm almost ready to bolt for Red Hat!
I have tried numerous times to set up SAMBA so that students can log
into the system and access the files they need to access. They can't.
The latest error is that the machine account isn't set up. But I can't
find where the machine account is. When I upgraded from Jaunty (which
worked fine), I got this error and was unable to delete the machine
password from the /etc/samba/smbpasswd file to reload it. Now there
isn't an /etc/samba/smbpasswd file at all, so the accounts must be
stored elsewhere. Any ideas? Students /can/ log in directly to the
server or via ssh. The problem is samba, and it appears to be the
-------------- next part --------------
