Can't connect to my newly-set-up Samba server from any machine in my 
domain, or from the machine itself.

Network numbers/names replaced to protect the nervous :)

Anyway, the NT server I also tried from claims that "login not 
allowed from this workstation."

I've got the allow statement set up to allow any machine in my subnet 
to try and log in.

The machine is configured to use our NT domain controller(NT 4.0) to 
get passwords(ie, DOMAIN)

What on earth is a "tree connect"?
