wierd samba problem

I trying to network three computers using samba. "w2kpaul" (the lone windows box) is able to access files on both linux boxes ("ren" and "stimpy"). "stimpy" can access files on both "w2kpaul" and "ren". "ren" cannot access files on either of the of the two machines. The problem is failure to authenticate username and password. "ren" and "stimpy" are both slackware systems running KDE and have the same configuration for samba.

Has anyone got any suggestions how to debug this problem?
