Ok got the access problems solved, thanks to everyone who replied.  Now though a new problem has arisen and I have not been able to find a solution or even what the problem could be besides a duplicate host.  I am trying to get access to the shares from a WinXP Pro client.  Everytime I try to join the workgroup I get the message: 'You were not connected because a duplicate name exists on the network.  Go to System in Control Panel to change the computer name and try again.'  Now I've tried changing the computer name, no good.  I've tried from a win2k client with a completely different computer name of course, same result.  Anyone know what this could be beside there actually being a duplicate host name on the network, which I am one hundred percent sure there isn't.  Thanks in advance.
