Oh Ya...
Here is my current smb.conf

    workgroup = ntdomainname
    hosts allow = aaa.bbb.ccc.
    security = user
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY
    preserve case = yes
    short preserve case = yes

After reading the man pages, I have come to believe that most of these
parameters are irrelevant for a client.
