Search for "Windows NT" on this page:

It seems you need a "security mask".

If I were to take a guess, I'd say 2000/NT are using different versions of 
the CIFS protocol compared to Vista/XP.  I'd only be guessing, though.

Note that this is a linux list - not a samba list - so while there are 
samba experts on here, I'm not one of them :)  That being said, let us 
know if you still can't get it working.
