Tried all that too but it didn't help. The way I understand it
(which can be sum1med up as very poorly), if the registry key on the
Vista box
is set to 3 and the smb.conf file has "client ntlmv2 auth = yes" then
everything should be OK.

I found this article: 
that helped a little.

Are there any tests I can run that might help narrow it down to a
problem with the user, the password, the Vista box or the Linux box?
