Look at the authentication of your member server, does the server
authenticate right against your PDC/BDC? Which version of
Samba? what about using dfs or dfs proxy on your PDC/BDC to map the share?
Do you use WINS?

There is a setting in gpedit.msc somewhere to tell the PC to wait for
network connectivity before showing the login box. (no idea where - find it
yourself - sorry)

  Anothe option - I have one user woth a similar problem. She keeps getting
'duplicate machine name exists' popups appearing regardless of what I name
her machine. The laptop caches her user details so she can log in fine, but
generally has weird problems connecting to new shares. 
You might see the behaviour you are getting if there were machines with
duplicate names - one would join the domain properly, wheras the other's
trust account would fail but could log in with cached credentials and then
have problems connecting to domain repated stuff.

hope that helps
