[Samba] XP NetBT 4321 error when booting and trying to connect to the samba server

We just did a fresh load on a new Windows XP Pro machine.

Dual Opteron 248
Iwill DK8N Motherboard
	with Nvidia Gigabit Ethernet controller
1GB (4 x 256MB) Memory
3ware 7006-2 RAID Controller
Dual 40GB Disks Striped
ATI 7000 VE Dual Graphics controller

All XP drivers installed and XP updates.
Connected to a Linksys EGW008 - 8 port gigabit hub

Our linux server is RH 9.0 with Samba 2.2.7a-security-rollup-fix from Redhat

When the machine boots it does not connect to the linux server properly and
takes about 4 minutes till it sees the samba shares correctly.

Initially it was trying to become the lmhosts master but the linux server is
set to 65 and denies this during an election.

I then turned off the XP registry entry for lmhosts master to prevent this

Our domain internally is ISLLC, the server is and the XP machine

The XP machine now gets the following error in the event log:

The name "ISLLC          :1d" could not be registered on the Interface with
IP address The machine with the IP address did not
allow the name to be claimed by this machine.

Any help would be appreciated.
