User can't acess shares

I have one user on my network who cannot access samba shares on one of
our servers.

We have two machines running RH 6.0 (Kernel 2.2.5-15) and Samba 2.0.3.
The user in question can access shares on one machine but not the other.
The user has the same unix and samba password on both machines. Both
machines are set up to use encrypted passwords. The user logs in from a
win98 machine. Other users, logging from the same Windows machine have
no problem mapping shared drives. The user can log onto the linux
machine and has no problem working in the directories that are shared.
However, when the user in question tries to map any share on the linux
machine, she is always prompted for a password. Entering her password
results in a wrong password error message. The same password has been
set up for Linux, Windows, and Samba. Using smbclient to connect to the
share as the user in question on the target machine, I get the following
error message (Debug level is 3):

session setup failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password
pair in a Tree Connect or Session Setup are invalid)

I am at loss to know how to proceed from here.  Any assistance will be
greatly appreciated. If more information is needed, I will be happy to
provide all that I can.
