Are both w2k boxes on the same ip network?
If not:  Are you running samba as daemon on the unix box, or do you
         setup this as service via inetd?
		 If you run this via inetd: check the /etc/hosts.allow file.

Do you setup both unix and samba user?

Dump all samba parameter via "testparm", and check again in conjunction
with "man smb.conf".
