[Samba] Help with Samba

I am new to Linux and Samba and would appreciate some help in getting it 

I can see the server in the network neighborhood window but when I click on 
it I get the following: "\\Server is not accessible, The network path was 
not found"

I can do an nmblookup from the Linux box and get back IP addresses of other 
machines on the network. For the server itself, it fails to find its own 
name with "name query failed to find name server" I have put the name in 
both the hosts and lmhosts file. I have a WINS server and can ping IP 

Any suggestion would be appreciated. BTW in the smbd.log has this to say:

[2002/02/13 14:04:36, 0] passdb/secrets.c:secrets_init(47)
   Failed to open etc/samba/secrets.tdb

Here is the smb.conf file

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from Lserver (
# Date: 2002/02/08 15:33:39

         workgroup = WORKGROUP
