There is not enough information to make a guess.  Send me (off-list) 
your smb.conf.  Also, set your log level to 5 and "log file = 
/var/opt/samba/log.%m", then attempt the share mount, and send me the 
log file (log.machine name).

Whatever the outcome, you will need to upgrade your Samba version.  If 
you are using HP CIFS Server, you can stay on 2.2 - we still supply and 
support 2.2.12.  You can also upgrade to 3.0.8.  If you are using 
opensource, then you should go to 3.0.14a.

No other Samba server seem to be having any problems except this one (hamilton). When a legitimate user tries to access a Samba share from a Windows client, it asks for his/her User name & password, and it won't accept the user's current network id & password.
