Help! Newbie going bananas

Here is my problem.

I am running Samba 2.02 on a Mac OS X server.  It quite happily runs SWAT
and the server appears in Network Neighbourhood.  Windows 95 clients can
log on to it from NN.  WinNT cannot, with the server not even getting as
far as asking for a username and password.  It returns the following error:

\\Hyperion_ii is not available.

The remote procedure call failed.

The client, in this case, is a Windoze NT 4.0 server (SP3).  The error log

Any clues?
