[Samba] Client connection problem

I've been banging my head on this for two days now !

Everything checks out cool on the server, however I can't get the client to
connect.  I've gone through a number of troubleshooting docs and all lead
me to suspect the hosts allow entry, however, even if I allow everyone on
the network, I still get the below error msgs.

Server:  scooby  - FreeBSD 4.5 running Samba 2.2.2
  Client : shaggy  - Windows 2000K Server SP2

      C:\>net view scooby
      System error 5 has occurred.

      Access is denied.
      C:\>net use z: \\scooby\share  /user:me
      System error 1240 has occurred.
      This account is not authorized to log in from this station.

Here's a copy of my smb.conf

      workgroup = geeks
      netbios name = scooby
      server string =  Samba Server
      hosts allow  = shaggy
      log file = /var/log/log.%m
      max log size = 50

      comment = Test Share
      path = /tmp
      read only = yes
      user = me

Please ,......anybody have any other avenues I might try ?

Thanks In advance !
