I am at a loss, and I am sure I am doing something incorrectly

Problem: Cannot map network drive with Resco File Explorer 2008 on Sprint Mogul (Windows Mobile 6)

Behavior: When using Resco File Explorer, I select to MAP drive and I path to \\LINUX-PD\linuxpodcasts , > Permanent Connection > I select to connect using a different Username / Password, it will continually repeat asking for a password.

NOTE: I am capable of using and XP machine to connect to the samba share, no problem (one of the main things frying my noodle is that there is no workgroup/domain settings on the Windows Mobile device).

Below is my samba.conf----------------------------------------
workgroup = MyHOME
map to guest = Bad User
printcap name = cups
logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile
logon drive = P:
logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
usershare allow guests = Yes
cups options = raw
include = /etc/samba/dhcp.conf

comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S, %D%w%S
read only = No
inherit acls = Yes
browseable = No

comment = Network Profiles Service
path = %H
read only = No
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700
store dos attributes = Yes

comment = All users
path = /home
read only = No
inherit acls = Yes
veto files = /aquota.user/groups/shares/

comment = All groups
path = /home/groups
read only = No
inherit acls = Yes

comment = All Printers
path = /var/tmp
create mask = 0600
printable = Yes
browseable = No

comment = Printer Drivers
path = /var/lib/samba/drivers
write list = @ntadmin, root
force group = ntadmin
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775

comment = downloaded shows
path = /home/jason/Podcasts/
read only = No
inherit acls = Yes

comment = storage drive
path = /media/disk/
read only = No
inherit acls = Yes


Some basic tests performed per the Official Samba 3.2.x HOW TO reference Guide CH38 :
IP of the MOGUL =

1) can ping the name LINUX-PD from the Mogul
2) can ping from the Mogul
3) can ping the IP of the Mogul from the LINUX-PD
4) on LINUX-PD can perform smbclient -L LINUX-PD with no errors
5) on LINUX-PD can perform nmblookup -B LINUX-PD __SAMBA__ with no errors
6) on LINUX-PD if I perform nblookup -d 2 '*' , I only get a response from the, not the MOGUL

any suggestions would be GREATLY APPRECIATED
