The NT network redirector will not allow you to connect to a 
NetbIOS name using more than one user id.  The woraround is to
do something like

	net use h: \\servername\share1  /user:user1
	net use i: \\aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd\share2 /user:user2

where aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd is the IP address of servername.  You 
can also use LMHOST entries and netbios aliases for this.
