First thing I would do is to get a newer samba release, we run samba 2.0.7
on several AIX servers here with (almost)no problems.

Change this to IDSRISC and remove the next line, netbios only uses capital

Hmm... This doesn't look right....
You want the IP address of your wins-server here.

Another odd thing I have seen under AIX is that it's *not* a good thing(tm)
to use # as comment marker, use ; instead...
