However, I would like to be able to log into my older Linux box, but am having trouble doing so.  There are two user account that I use when connecting via SAMBA, but these accounts don't let me log in either from the console or via ssh.  I don't yet know enough about user accounts on Linux to understand why.  How do I enable the account to allow me to log in via ssh?  I haven't been able to figure it out from the books I have.

To troubleshoot:
On the SSH server.
Run the SSH daemon in debug mode listening on port 222 and capture the output:
# sshd -ddd -p 222

On the client, turn on any debugging has.

Send me the output and I'll see what I can do to help :)
