Permission problem - NT to 2003 trusts

I've created a two-way trust between an NT domain and a 2003 domain in a test network.  Users on the NT domain can access shares on the 2003 domain but not the other way around.
Whenever I try to access shares on the NT domain controller, I receive a message saying that I'm not allowed to access the resources.

Clearly I'm dealing with a permissions issue - the problem is where do I need to change the permissions?  I've tried adding domain users and authenticated users from the 2003 domain to the permissions on the NT DC at the root, at the share, and at the sub-folders within the share.

Is there some kind of update function that needs to be done before 2003 users can access the resources on the NT domain?

What am I missing?

on the NT machine, add at least Read permissions to users or groups from the 2003 domain in the 'Sharing' tab of the folder you're sharing, and also in the 'Security' tab of the folder. For the security tab (ntfs permissions), make sure that the permissions are inherited to the files or subfolders of the share as well.

then, from the a machine in the 2003 domain, try to map a drive to that share.

you may also need to edit the 'User Rights' policy on the NT machine (using User Manager) to specify that the user or group from the 2003 domain has the 'Access this computer over the network' user right.
