The problem is that 10.4 is configured to send plain-text passwords  
(insist on encrypting them). So, you have two solutions: disable the  
encryption or upgrade your server that it can accept encrypted  
passwords. I would suggest the later as (1) you should be anyway and  
(2) if you disabled it on the client then it will be disabled for all  
SMB traffic.
