Angry Samba 3.0.6 - How to mount Samba Shares from Windows 2003?

Linux Box: Fedora Core 2, Samba 3.0.6, No Firewall at all
Win Box: Win2K3 Server Enterprise, running AD

Task: to mount a share on the samba server, from the Windows Server.

How the heck can I do this?

I enabled the "Allow unsigned communications from 3rd party SMB servers" option in group policy, disabled the require encrypted communications & digital encryption of secure channel data, then rebooted the server.

I also added enableplaintextpassword=1 in the lanmanworkstation parameters of the registry.

After all of that, I still get this error when trying to mount a share:

C:\Program Files\Support Tools>net use p: \\wall\root
System error 1240 has occurred.

The account is not authorized to log in from this station.

Please help! I can't start a migration to 2 Linux FileServers (replacing 6 Windows 2000 Servers) if I can't mount a share from the Win2K3 box.

It doesn't seem like that is the prblem any more. Seems like your credentials are wrong.

My credientials are correct. I can mount the share using a Windows 98 laptop.
