yes, the 'workgroup' name in smb.conf should be the DOMAIN for all users
so there's a problem there to be sure. At this point, I would delete the
user and add the user back in.

smbpasswd -x barbara
smbpasswd -a barbara

Also, putting profile inside of home directory is probably a bad
idea...but unless you end up joining Windows computers to the domain, it
probably won't matter.

security = user is the right idea

I understand why smbclient //barbara/ufficio -U barbara failed because
of the account setting above but the second command...
smbclient //barbara/ufficio says that anonymous login was successful but
'BAD_NETWORK_NAME' really throws me for a loop (and may be the issue
causing the problem with the account domain up above).

Just out of curiosity...

what do you get from
net getlocalsid
net getdomainsid

(hopefully S-1-5-21-4006416855-825432111-2697360864)

let's try this first...

service nmb stop
service smb stop
rm /var/lib/samba/wins*
service nmb start
service smb start

then if needed, delete the smbuser barbara and re-add barbara and check

In theory, this shouldn't matter since smb.conf re-inits itself each
minute so by the time you are fully booted, cups would be running at
which point samba should be able to connect to cups. I don't use Fedora
9 / samba but I can see that your description of their SysV startup
order is accurate but would think that if that's causing people
problems, it would be adjusted as cups is rather important to samba.

I think that if you want to allow 'guest' you have to 'map' the 'Bad
User' guest to an account and you will also have to add in Ufficio
guest ok = yes
