[Samba] tree connect

When trying to access a disk share (on a VMware Win2K machine) that shows up
fine with smbclient -L (version 2.2.8a on Gentoo), I get a "tree connect
failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED" error. Examining the TCP stream with
Ethereal (see excerpts below) revealed that the initial login went fine,
with password sent and accepted. However, a second authentication exchange,
apparently for connecting to the disk share, failed. I am able to access a
shared printer on this same Win2K machine with no problem.

Any ideas?
