What the #*$& did MS change this time?

OK, I'm lost and asking for help. I'll be the first to admit that I don't know
much about SMB networking. I've been digging through the archives of this
listserve a bit and seen references to other people having similar problems,
but I didn't see any solutions.
At home I have a mostly working Samba setup:
Machine 1) RedHat Linux 6.1 running Samba 2.0.7. This system is my
Machine 2) Windows 95 that the family uses.
Machine 3) My laptop running RedHat 6.2 and Samba 2.0.7. It also has a
couple of VMWare "machines" with NT4 installed.
My problem is with the NT virtual machines. These "machines" are just copies
of each other with one difference: one is plain vanilla NT while the other has
had Service Pack 4 installed.
With plain vanilla NT, everything is working: I can get at the Samba shares on
both Linux machines, as well as any shares on the Win95 box.
Once I applied SP4 to the other NT machine, it could no longer connect to
anything. When I try to connect using the Windows Explorer, I get a popup that
"Microsoft Windows Network: The account is not authorized to login from this
I've been going through the "DIAGNOSIS.txt" doc in the Samba distribution and
everything works up through Test 8: running the 'net view' command on the NT
box. That gives me "System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied".
I'm sure that I've got something misconfigured in the smb.conf (included below)
on Machine 1, but I'm at a total loss as to what it is. The unpatched NT still
works, and the Win95 still works. It's just the patched NT that is giving me
problems. Did MS go and change something that will keep me from using it
to access my Samba shares?
I would appreciate any advice.
