Hi all. Could any of you SAMBA gurus help me out here?

I've set up a SAMBA server, under Mandrake Linux 6.1. It's being used on a
private LAN (not connected to the Internet) in an office. When I set it up
at home to test it out it worked fine, but when I got it down to the office
and set it up on their LAN, I get the following errors in log.nmb:

   send_netbios_packet: send_packet() to IP port 137 failed
   register_name: failed to send packet trying to register name SMBSERVER
libsmb/nmblib.c: send_udp(754)
   Packet send failed to ERRNO= Invalid argument

At home I didn't get ANYTHING in the log about it trying to broadcast to All I got was a message that said that SAMBA was
established as the local master for subnet and it worked just
fine with my Windoze 98 machine. Anyone know what the problem is here?
