Thanks for the reply.  Yes, I've researched all the relevant past articles
describing this error.  To my knowledge, Windows ME doesn't support
share-level passwords.  In fact, the share mounts properly and enumerates
the directory from three other Linux machines also on the LAN (and the
Windows machines, of course).  This changed (broke) with a cvsup within the
past week or so.

I'm not familiar with how to use Ethereal to diagnose the problem or capture
the packets, but I'll give it a try.
