This may be a bit more complex than what you think, It could be that 
your samba2 box is trying to talk to your windows 2008 box in a 
'dialect' that it does not understand. I think that you need to raise 
the log level in smb.conf and then see if you get anything that can 
point you in the direction of the problem.

I personally have never heard of the MEGA programming language, is it 
available for a more recent OS ??
