You need to add your user to the smbpasswd file 

eg. smbpasswd -a <username>

If the username and password are the same as the user on your w2k
machine and both machines are in the same workgroup and you have
encrypted passwords enabled in smb.conf then you should be able to see
your samba shares from w2k. See
http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.html (or pdf
if you prefer).
