Long shot, but still :
By default, Vista is set to do NTLM v2 authentication for HTTP, and to 
not allow Basic authentication.  Since everything is more or less 
interrelated nowadays in Windows, the corresponding setting in IE may 
also carry through to the (buggy) HTTP client that the Windows Explorer 
uses to access "web folders" through HTTP.
Use "Internet Settings" in IE, find the "allow basic authentication" 
checkbox, allow it, and try again.
Barring that, maybe have a look in the Registry.
Also another trick, that used to be important under XP : if you get to 
that point, and it asks for the URL of the webfolder, make sure you add 
":80" after the hostname.
Like ""
XP is known to try to interpret this as a Netbios name otherwise.
