Auth problem

I am experiencing a peculiar, intermittent authentication problem with
Samba and an NT4 PDC.  Some days I am able to authenticate to the
Samba shares, other days I am not.  Other people in the same office on
the same physical network are also able to connect.

The error I get on a bad day is:
NetwkstaUserLogon gave error 5
password server SECURE failed NetWkstaUserLogon
NT Password did not match ! Defaulting to Lanman

I have set unencrypted passwords in my workstation registry about 4
times now, that has done nothing.  I have changed the password on the
PDC, no go.  Workstation is W2k.

Is the error indicative of password failure or server failure?

My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely.
