I don't know if its related as I have never attempted to connect a linux box 
to a micro$oft share, but when connecting from a micro$soft box to a linux 
box running samba, you need to enable encrypted passwords for samba.

This is purely because of the way MS-Windows works (or rather the NT streams, 
of which 2K is one.)
