I don't think you need that unless you are using samba as a domain
controller.  If you just want a windows7 (pro...) client to send it's
NTLM credentials to samba like XP would,  run 'secpol.msc' and under
Under Local Policies, Security Options, Network security, change
option from ‘not defined’ to ‘Send LM & NTLM use NTLMv2 session
security if negotiated.

Otherwise you can only connect to shares with
security = share and guests allowed.
