Let me see if I understand the situation:
You have a FreeBSD box running Samba. You have Win2k boxes
which connect to file shares on that FreeBSD box. When they
do, the PC's can not access partitions on the FreeBSD box,
unless the FreeBSD box has already accessed them.
I don't quite understand the reference to NTFS. Are you saying
that the *FreeBSD* box is mounting NTFS partitions, and it then
makes those partitions available to the PC's via Samba? Where
are those NTFS partitions located? Are they on the hard drives
of the FreeBSD box? Or is the FreeBSD box mounting them from
some other file server?

What *exactly* is your /etc/fstab file? The fact that you
have directories under /mnt does not tell us anything about
what filesystems you are mounting, or how they are getting
