I don't believe that Dos Client is capable of encrypted passwords

encrypted passwords = No

in smb.conf should be all that is necessary to deal with that.

default of samba is 'security = user'

which means you have to supply user & password to authenticate but if
you supply user name, it will prompt for password...

net use f: \\PRESARIO\jmmcarty /USERNAME:jmmcarty

I think is how you do it but I do recall differences in this from Win98
to WinXP so it might be best to simply get the proper usage from command
line itself...

net use /?

otherwise, you can explicitly change the 'security' methodology to
'security = share' which is more of what DOS Client and Windows
95/98/WFWG was used to...a share level protocol which had no concept of
users at all...only passwords - each 'share' had to be separately
authenticated. This is covered in the man pages of smb.conf
