I've seen circumstances where NT workstations, regardless of SP,
conveniently "forgets" to read the LMHOSTS file which makes it
complain about "Logon server not available" since my logon server
is on a different subnet. But I can't really say for sure since
I'm using WinDD NIS to allow login authentication using NIS instead.
