I am not using WINS and both machines are on the same subnet. Is there is
any known issue of win2k with samba ?

This means that your Win2K machine is unable to resolve the sunmachine
name to it's IP address. Are you wusing WINS?

If so, how is Samba configured? Where is your WINS server?

If you are not using WINS, are both machines on the same sub-net?
