your hosts table is messed up.
  I've got a problem with Samba starting up on an Alpha running redhat 5.0 .
  It takes ages
  to load to of the services and the second times out with an error:

  Starting SMB services: smbd httpd: cannot determine local host name.
  Use ServerName to configure it manually.

  Anybody got any good ideas. I've read all the stuff I can find about samba 
  but not had any luck.
