Thanks for the reply. But it turned out to be something more basic.
At the time, I was logged in a local machine admin account, not a
domain account. Now I never expected to be authenticated directly,
but I did expect to be prompted for a user name and password. That
was not the case. But when I logged in on a domain account, the dfs
took me right where it should have, with no quarrel (or prompting for
a valid user account). I'm still getting my feet wet with Server
2003, as opposed to 2000 Server domains, so I suspect it was all
something having to do with Server 2003 ADS not liking a referrel from
a non domain user.
