novice samba question

 I have three questions on samba:

1) Access is OK from NT4 PDC.  Access from BDC failed whenever PDC is also running.
NT4 keeps asking for user name/password.

2) Why does NT4 asks for username/password when I try to access the home serice on Samba?
Shouldn't NT4 just use the username/password of the current logged on user?

3) Why does NT4 ask for username/password for the guest services?

my samba config is as follw:

deadtime=15
interfaces = 192.168.0.1/24 192.168.1.1/24
security = user
guest account = nobody
wins support = yes
[tmp]
        comment = Temporary file space
        path = /tmp
        read only = no
        public = yes
        browseable = yes
[tmp1]
        comment = Temporary file space
        path = /usr/tmp
        read only = no
        public = yes
        browseable = yes
        create mask = 777
[homes]
        writable = yes

Samba is samba-1.9.18p4. NT4 plain (no SP3), Linux 2.032, Redhat 5.0

Thanks
