      I had some trouble with this. Crank up the login failure events on
      your Windows box and see how the NSLU2 is trying to log in. I found
      that while I thought the NSLU2 would log in using a local account,
      it was adding my domain name to the user it was trying to log in as,
      which is why it was failing. The event in the Event Log was what
      head me to that.
