Unable to authenticate to CIFS on 3.2 install on Vista

Hi, I've got a brand spankin' new installation of 3.2 … no config changes … on Vista SP1.  Everything seems to start up just fine, but when I try to browse Alfresco via CIFS I am unable to authenticate as admin/admin.  I have not disabled windows smb on this machine, but I don't think I have to?

I am trying to connect using: \\workstationnameA\

I am immediately prompted for credentials, and I enter admin for the user and admin for the password.  I receive a logon unsuccessful message.

On a perhaps related note, when I login to the Alfreso web client as admin/admin , and then click "View in CIFS" in a file's "links", I receive the error: Cannot find 'file://workstationnameA/Alfresco/Tester/somefile.pdf'.  Make sure the path or Internet address is correct.

I've read the CIFS thread in this forum, the 3.2 wiki page on file servers, and one or two old bug reports about CIFS not working right on Vista (and maybe XP).
