I looked all over the archives to find an answer to this issue with Samba
not loading on my RH7.0 machine.

It turns out that I had deleted the server's name from my /etc/hosts file.

I discovered that by tail -f  /var/log/samba/log.smb

when I saw the "unknown host xxxxxxx", I checked /etc/hosts and volia! It
wasn't there.  I added the name back in, and restarted Samba.
