Ok, here is the situation.  I have a plethora of these errors in my security
log.  These are my school lab computers.  They are on a different windows
2000 domain separate from the win2k3 Domain in the building.  I have a file
server on my win2k3 domain that these computers connect to via a logon script
that maps a drive to the file server via some win2k3 domain account
credentials.  The mapping occurs just fine, and i actually see the successful
login of that account throughout the logs.

However, and at writing time, I am not sure how far the errors below go
back.  I am trying to figure out why the errors below are popping up.  Why
would these computers be trying to talk to the filesserver using the NtLmSsp
process

I am not sure where to begin the troubleshooting process
