I know little to nothing about samba so need some advice on a problem I'm

One of my users is trying to mount a UNIX directory onto his PC and gets
error "not authorised from this station". He was able to do this until he
had his hard drive swapped out. Desktop have said they all settings are as
they were previously and that this is a UNIX issue. Other users on the same
network are not having this problem and the user in question can mount the
directory from another PC which would suggest this is a problem with that
specific PC.

I have checked that all relevant smb/nmb procs are running and there are no
errors in the logs. I can ping/traceroute to the PC and the PC can ping the
UNIX box. I believe this is a local PC issue and wondered if anyone could
help me determine this as the problem is flying back and forwards between
UNIX and Desktop and the user is starting to get p$£%d

Thanks in advance.
