Windows networking can produce interesting errors.
One of them is the following:
if a directory on the samba server was mapped on the w2k machine
and the map is broken (red X on the map in My Computer)
then you have to unmap it first to be able to log in.
Until you dont unmap it, it can produce all kind of errors.
