    heres how i did it:

    on the windows 2003 machine =
    control panel > admin tools > local security policy > set ACCOUNTS: LIMIT LOCAL ACCOUNT.......DISABLE

    then you should be able to get onto the folder assuming the folder has been set to shared w/ the correct account w/o pw.

    Lightbulb Problems with DHCP server on MS Windows Server 2003
    I've got serious problem. I've tried to make reservation in DHCP server on IP address by my MAC address. The problem is, that the operation has probably failed and now my MAC address is blocked in DHCP server. There is nothing about my PC and reservation on DHCP lists. When I try to make new reservation an information appears “The address in unavailable”.
    Please help because I can’t use DHCP on my PC

    Anyone wanting to connect to Server 2003 contact me, its too complicated to write on here, it conects just like you would on a PC, i can access all my users files as a administrator and copy them to my Mac, you dont connect via smb or the with the usual box, when I connect i get a Box with the microsoft logo and enter my usual name and password and bingo I am in.

    I will help anyone with theis problem as I found Apple support totally un helpful in this area as I also did microsoft.

    It really dose work!!!!! i have also synced Microsoft Entourage to my server as well no probs

    You need to download from the Microsoft website UAM Enabiler and install it on your Mac
