download nblookup
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/830578

this is a netbios name resolution troubleshooting tool (similar to NSlookup for DNS) that will hopefully help.

the client machine obvioulsy need to be able to resolve a netbios name to IP before it can connect. this tool will indicate that this part is working.
