KDE and MS server 2003 is a tricky beast and one that works flawless in
Gnome Ubuntu. I had headaches with this too.
In my experience there are 3 solutions;
1 there is a security setting "somewhere" in MS 2003 server to change.
Never got that one working and not recommended
2 for each user you can automount via a script the share in question;
mount -t cifs //ip-numberofserver/servershare /mount/validmountdir -o
this works though it is a very crude solution. SMB protocol does not
3 install the Gnome VFS + openoffice.org integration. works after that
