I agree that your problem is not with the authentication which I described.  

I see you are using the samba machine as domain master.  I have no experience with this 
setting so I cant comment if there is something strange there.

The only thing I can see is diffrent from ours here is the /path/md3/%U.  We use 

Other than that there might be som TS registry settings (vaguely remember something about 
file link tracking) I am unsure.  And I agree that the MultipleUsersOnConnection is sorely 
missed on W2K TS. 

Sorry that I cant be of any more assistance.
