The error is in the create_subnets portion. No local interfaces would 
prohibit creation of a browse list or any other kind of network list. 
One problem I can think of off my head is that your hosts_allow do not 
include the address range that your NIC(s) belong to. Or that hosts_deny 
contains the range. It would help us greatly if you posted your network 
config (ips and suibnet masks) and your samba config file.
