Hi Kevin;
a couple of things to try to narrow down the problem:
1. from an nt or w2k machine on the problem subnet, can
   you connect to a share using the \\ipaddress\sharename
   format instead of \\hostname\sharename?
2. it is possible that because of your interfaces=  line
   or 'hosts allow or hosts deny = lines' that samba is 
   not able to negotiate a connection; can you send us
   specifics regarding your smb.conf file and ipaddresses
   affected (don't have to be actual addresses, but must
   be faked up to duplicate exactly your subnet schemes, etc)
Hope this helps,

We have HP-UX 10.20 with Samba 2.0.7.  We have a
combination of Win2K, NT , 98 and 95 workstations. 
The problem is we have 1 subnet not being able to
connect to the Samba shares using the hostname of the
server.  We get the error message "The computer or
sharename could not be found".  We can ping from these
machines using the hostname so we know DNS is working.
 Ant suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
