It's a bug with either Samba 3.x or Windows Mobile 2003...  When Samba 
3.x has SPNEGO enabled (as it does by default and for good reason), 
Windows Mobile 2003 cannot connect.  Disabling SPNEGO, while not 
recommended, allows the device to connect... although my XP machines 
couldn't connect to samba at that point.  6 in one, 1/2 dozen the other.

I opened a bug report on it a little while back, but it's not even been 
looked at by the developers, near as I can tell.  Here's the link to my 
bug report:

Solved on my end. I used a proprietary shareware program called 
PocketLan and
I was able to connect to my samba share w/o problems. The native 
software included with Windows Mobile 2003 continues to fail. 
Obviously, that

If I can help with this via diagnostics, log files or whatever, I'll be 
to do so.
