whenever I try to access a network share from my (2) Windows 7  pro machines to a server 2003 box (that is in a workgroup), I am promted for authentication....but it always fails to connect.  This works fine from my XP machine to the server.

I would guess that it is probably an NTLM problem. Windows 7 by default authenticates with NTLM 2.

Make sure that the time on the Windows 7 machine is the same as the time on the server.
Best way to do this is by configuring ntp server on windows 7 - click on clock and set internet time

Do you have a user account set up on the 2003 machine which exactly matches the user account you're using on the 7 box, with the same password?

NP, I hit that for a week when Win7 came first came out. I had to use systernal sniffers to track it down to a GPO..... :/
