I should have also said that I had been using this configuration
successfully to mount shares when the machine was Window ME. I installed
Windows XP professional. I can also connect to a windows 95 machine and a
windows 2000 machine with no problems.

Another thing is that I have tried this with no password and with the
administrator username/password and I get the same effect.
