I have found a solution to the problem perplexing most of us in installing samba. The solution is relatively easy.

The reason the passwd page does not load is because the actual password file which holds the user lists is not created by the packaged installer.

To set this up, merely open a terminal window and type the following:

sudo touch /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd

Enter your root password (if prompted) and all should be well.

I hope this helps!
