 Also i forgot to mention that this works fine from an NT4.0 box 
dbl clicking on a NT 3.51 box.. only a problem from nt40->nt40
(password crypting?)

 hmm ok well i have the user "Administrator" with password "blaa"
on box A and the user "Administrator" with same pass on Box B
both are on the PDC and the user Administrator is on the PDC
and i have this in my smb.conf
 a few thinks i left out for easy reading. these seem relevent

workgroup = NUTECH
domain master = yes
local master = yes  
preferred master = yes
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
guest account = nobody
domain admin group = Administrator
domain sid = S-1-5-21-111-222-121-312
domain logons = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY

----- end conf -----

 so i assume that when i dbl click on Server B's entry in 
server manager from Server A that server A would request something
from server B and server B would authinticate me from the PDC
and the PDC should say "Yes Administrator can do anything" kinda
stuff ? The only thought i had was that there were some difference
in how the 4.0 box is dealing with the packets or crypted passwords
as compared to the 3.51 box.

 Thanks for your time in reading this mess..
