Ah - the magic that unlocks the NTLM door is in the cotrol panel.  Try this:
1. Open Control Panel
2. Open "Internet & Network -> Local Network Browsing"
3. Enter your normal windows (active directory) user name and password.
4. Click apply, close control panel.
5. I think you'll need to restart an Konqueror instances to take effect.

That's all I did :)  Keep in mind, if your company uses an Active Directory 
"domain" you'll need to prefix your user name (in #3) with it.  Assume your 
company's domain is "ABC" and your user name "barney" then you'd have to 
enter "ABC\barney" as your user name.

After that, KDE should be able to automagically browse around without 
prompting you for your password.  Not sure about "smb://" shares as I 
usually run around with an admin account, eg "smb://adminacc@windowsbox/".

Let me know if I can help further :)


Coitado do espermatozóide... Mora num ovo, o prédio é um saco, o vizinho 
trás fede pra caramba, o vizinho de cima é um pentelho, e o síndico, 
tá duro, põe ele pra fora!
