access denied to a windows 2003 server

Hi All,

I currently have two pc's with a 2003 server and a brand new fedora installed at home.
When i try to access the server, it says something like
You don't have suffisant rights to access smb://servername .

But i am using administrator account to log on.... as i am new to samba and network stuff... can someone give me some advice to solve this problem ?

Kind regards,
