error msg 5 is 'Access Denied' on nt - has the nt user got the correct
write permissions on the directory?

This is a common one. Error 5 is NT's code for 'access denied'. If you are
running backup server as a service, it is probably running under the 'system'
account which has no network access. To fix this, open control panel/services,
find the SYBBCK_ entry, select 'startup' and change the account name to a real
user account (maybe add one for the purpose). Then grant access to this
account to your network drive. If you still have problems, log on to NT using
the account backupserver is using and see if you can create files manually on
the network drive.

cheers,
tonyi
