It's possible for a user to disable Netserver login without disabling 5250
login.  You should see message CPIB682 in QSYSOPR and QHST:

User profile xxxxxxx disabled for AS/400 Support for Windows Network
  Neighborhood access.

When you try to connect to an IFS drive the PC will automatically try to
authenticate using the network i.d. and password you used when you booted or
logged in the PC.  If the password is different than the AS/400 password it
will disable the Netserver login.  NT lets you prompt for user name and
password, but Windows 9x requires that your network and AS/400 i.d. and
password match.

If you change the network password to match the AS/400, you can re-enable
the user by performing a CHGUSRPRF USRPRF(xxxxxxx), without specifying any
parameter changes.
