Not enough information here to be definitive but it would seem as though
you have set the NETBIOS name for the samba server (within smb.conf) to
be the same name as the Win2003 system which is a definite bad thing to
do - you don't want two machines with the same 'machine name'

You might want to access the samba system using the ip address instead -
open up my computer and type \\IP_ADDRESS_OF_SAMBA_SYSTEM in the address
bar and see what shares/files/folders are showing up instead of \
\NETBIOS_NAME since they apparently both have the same NETBIOS_NAME
