SunFreeWare Samba 3.0.10 on Solaris 10.  Installed,
and able to authenticate locally on the samba box
after 'smbpasswd -a userid'.

But....attempt to map a network drive from W2K
fails at authentication (the UNIX protocol in use
is NIS).  Heres' what's gacked up in the log file:

  check_ntlm_password:  Authentication for user
[rxmc1821] -> [rxmc1821] FAILED

at the command line:
ypcat passwd | grep rxmc

rxmc1821:94taElXKZTzcc:4060:5600:Robert Metcalf


Any help appreicated.
