troubleshooting Question

Mac OS X Panther Server Share in an Active Directory environment gives error

We have an XServe running Panther.  This server is a domain member of our Windows 2000 Active Directory.  I shared out a folder on the XServe and gave all of active directory users read/write permissions to it.  The problem is when an active directory user tries to connect to this share, they get an error "the account is not authorized to log in from this station".  I have enabled "send unecrypted password to connect to 3rd party SMB servers" on our domain security policy but it didn't fix this error.  I can login using any active directory user account on the XServe (physically go there) with no problems but can't go there over the network.  I can ping the XServe from any workstation.  NSlookup also works.  How do I fix this error?  
The work around we're doing right now is to use the "map network drive" and click on connect using a "different user name" then use the local admin user of the XServe.  We would like our users to be able to just connect to the XServe without having to remember 2 different user name and password.
