If you are using WINS, do in DOS mode, nbtstat -R and nbtstat -RR to purge the netbios records on the laptop which have the problem. If you are using lmhosts, verify the entries inside.

Good luck.

Do you verify WINS configuration on your laptop ? Is your server register in the WINS database ?
You can try to add your server in the lmhosts file. After adding, you need to reboot. Could you map the drive manually after log on or not ?

done everything, still can not map manually to the shared on UNIX.

Are other users can map it ? From NT Workstation for example if you have. Do you have check the nmbd and smbd log on your server ? It can be also NIS problem. Do you join NIS from your server ?
If you've got errors in your logs, post them, I'll can try to help you to analyse.
Good luck.

i would say start with the passwords. How are they being handled.

1) they authenticate to unix with a unix password?
2) they authenticate to unix and it gets handed off to a PDC/BDC (nt machine)

alot of times when users log in there account gets locked for incorrect password so they can not get the mappings for samba shares.

thanks for the help and ideas. I got it working now by using smbpasswd -a userid to add users to samba paswd.

thanks sooooo much....
