NT - Not allowed from this workstation

I am the sysadmin in an office with an overabundance of Win95 machines and
a few NT 4.0 workstations.  All installs went relatively easy for logon
scripts, wins, etc.  I have run into a semi-serious problem with 2 of the
3 NT workstations. (All running the same service pack - 1).

When trying to make a share from one of the 2 remaining workstations, I
will recevie an error message saying that:

The account is not authorized to login from this workstation.

I have tried to force the issue by adding a "allow hosts" entry into the
smb.conf, but I still get the same message.

My hope was that someone else has setup NT workstations in their office
and has run into this same problem. By seeing one out of the three
workstations not having a problem, I am led to beleive it is a WinNT
config problem, although all settings are identical on the surface.

Anyone have some ideas?
