I'm having the same problem. One day these Win2K machines just stopped being
able to access the Samba server. If you find a solution let us all know.
I've been working on this one for the last week myself.

Hello Jason,
Thanks for responds :)

I think i havenot crossing subnets.

here we have some(4-5)w2k workstation and one w2k server(with
PCD , which is not in use) and one sun station as inet
server(mail, proxy, others)
All machines are in same network and in same cable.
all machines use DNS and now one WINS.
But Samba server netBios name is not its DNS name.(? problem
is from here)

I set on my workstation wins to samba  and all go ok (?)
but I still dont understand whats problem?
(others workstations works without wins)
