[K12OSN] OT-Samba/Win2k Problem

I'm having the wierdest problem trying to access my Linux (k12ltsp 4.2 
and 4.1) samba shares from my win2k workstation.  I'm pretty sure the 
problem is on the win2k end but I have no idea how to resolve it. 

Has anyone run into this?  I have the samba shares mapped as G and H 
drives.  I have reconnect at logon checked.  When I start up win2k it 
tries to connect but gives me a "incorrect user name or password" error 
box.  I type in the user name/password and I connect just fine.  I've 
reset the "connect as different user" thing a thousand times and it 
never fixes this.  The second problem is that once I get the H and G 
drive mounted I can only access them through programs.  If I do a "save 
as" in a program I can save a file to the server, or I can right click 
in the window and create a new file or folder, but I can't drag and drop 
anything into directories on the server.  This is really bizarre and 
driving me up the wall.  Has anyone seen these symptoms before?

Any help would be appreciated, including a steer towards a more 
appropriate forum.
