I'm not an expert but I see lots of things missing in your smb.conf file.
You have not defined the samba server netbios name. No samba password path.
Have you set samba passwords? Define security level.
Also, you may find that you will neeed to stop IPChains and IPTables on the
samba server once you get things running somewhat. At least until you can
set up firewall rules.
Once you set the netbios name - you should then be able to "see" the samba
server in network neighborhood. Also, should be alble to ping from windows
both the samba IP address and net bios name.
These are all things I learned over the last few months as I have been
learning Samba - hope it helps.

Subject: [Samba] can not connect to the shared printer
I'm learning Samba and I really appreciate somebody out there can help
me out. I'm using RedHat advanced server and a windows 2000. I created a
workgroup on samba and only samba machine and win2k machine are members.
I shared the printer attached to the Linux. From win2k PC, I can see the
workgroup, but I can not find the samba host from the workgroup, nor
does the printer. The smb.conf is attached.
I run smbclient -NL <hostname> and it shows the printer under the Sharename.
If I run net view //<hostname>, it returns that: "System error 53 has
occured, the network pass was not found"
I setup the samba 2 days ago, and the same problem happened then and
now. BTW, I can mount a windows share from Linux, so I guess samba is
Thanks and merry Christmas.
