No, i can't.
I have also tried pcguest, guest, admin, and windows 2000 accounts.
Question for you:
If i want to connect  to a windows 2000 shared folder from my Linux box,
what command do I type to attach or mount it?
Is it simply
"mount -o smbfs username=win2k_username,password=password
//windows_server_name/shared_folder /shared_folder"

Can you connect with a non-root account? I'm a sorta-newbie but seem to
recall that root is blocked in the default configuration.

When i try to connect to my SAMBA server from windows 2000 professional i
get the following message:

This is the windows DOS screen:
D:\>net use * \\samba\shared /user:root rootpassword
System error 1240 has occurred.
