[Samba] Problem with XP but not 2K. Guru help please

Try this in the global section:

use spnego = no

I saw a problem at our site where Samba would negotiate to the password 
server as it was nogiated against. So since in my case the password 
server was only NT, it did not succeed with spnego when the clients 
(Win2003) requested it.

Anyway, might be worth a try,
