[Samba] Samba Issue

We currently have Samba installed on a Solaris 8 server.  It is serving
several fileshares.  Within the last couple of months we have had an
issue with connecting to the share from the XP desktops.  On the same
share it will work fine for a while and then all of a sudden when you
try to mount the share it will ask for an ID and password (it normally
does not).  If you try again a few seconds later it will mount fine
without the ID and password.  It is not password protected.  Does anyone
have any idea what the problem could be?


In further investigation I find that when you CAN'T get in, this error
is recorded in the individuals log file.
