Sorry this is a Windows 2000 Domain.  CVSNT server is running on a Windows 2000 Server,
which is also one of the domain controllers.  The second system is running Windows 2000 Professional.  Both systems are on the same
subnet on the same side of the hardware firewall.  I need to go and check the 2kPro machines firewall settings.  While testing I
disabled virus protection on the Server.  It is not running a firewall.

When I ran checkout the system asked me to authenticate, as expected, but failed authentication on both attempts.  The first time
when running as my user, the second when using my domain admin user.  Both user have full permissions to all the directories CVSNT
should need to get to.

I will give this a shot tomorrow.
