As far as I know, NT will  always asks for passwords, unless you have
set up encrypted ones, which is pretty easy to do. Hence its not
supprising you have this problem.

BUT (and its a big but), my NT workstation still asks for the passwords
even though I have set up encrypted passwords. So if anyone else can
throw any light on this, I too would be interested.
