NT4/samba question

I was wondering if any knowledgeable people might have the answer to 
this question. We've configured samba on a sun unix machine running 
5.5.1.  We can connect and login, without any problems, from our Win98 
boxes.  However, we cannot login or map drives from the network 
neighborhood from our Windows NT workstations. The error is: "Account is 
not authorized to login from this station."

Here's a copy of my smb.conf file.

        workgroup = fast
        guest account = nobody

        guest ok = yes

        path = /export/home/print
        guest ok = yes
        path = /export/home/print
        public = yes
        only guest = yes
        writable = yes
        printable = no 

I also tried putting in the global section:
preferred master = yes
local master = yes
domain master = yes

and no go. One *key* point is that we can manually map the drives 
through the DOS window by typing something like this:

net use z: \\<servername>\<service>

This works fine and then we're able to see the drive from Explorer, and 
delete from Explorer as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
