OK.... Except, don't you want `password server = pluto,pdcserver'?

It may help to specify `interfaces = 184.108.40.206,192.168.1.1'

What is your `name resolve order' parameter? Make sure it lists
LMHOSTS before WINS. (To look up the defaults on parameters you
haven't specified, `testparm -s | grep' is your friend.)

Migrate to DHCP! I say this only partly in jest. DHCP is pretty much
essential for long-term management of a network of a decent size.
Changing things like WINS servers becomes very easy, then.
