Those of you familiar with Windows NT 4.0 servers know that I am attempting
to connect to the D: drive through the hidden admin share.  The username
and password are correct.  I can connect from a Windows 2000 box.  This
problem occurrs for every attempt to mount any windows shares.  I am using
the Linux box as a domain member authentication = DOMAIN.  This problem was
apparent to me in 2.2.4 and I was hoping to get different results with
2.2.5.  Obviously not.  smbclient tells me I have the share name correct.

Any help would be great.
