I have set a common folder to be shared from all machines on the LAN via Samba. All the XP Pro machines can see it in the network neighborhood but I have just mapped the folder as a drive so it is easily accesable from "my computer".
Our lone Windows 2000 machine can also see it but not access it either from NN or as a mapped drive. If you click on it, the machine simply hangs for a few seconds. These machines can ping each other and no firewall is in place. The Windows 2000 machine was not set up with a login or password (not my doing) but neither are any of the XP machines.
All the posts I have found on the Internet deal with machines that either cannot even see the Samba machine or have login failure but not the problem I am having.
