Hello ...

$ping prova 

from prova itself and if succeeded, from other host.
doest it work ?

If it does not work,
You have to go to network configuration,
K/system/network configuration
You need root password !!
Tabbed --> Hosts

You should add this in prova and also from other hosts.

check with ping again.

Does this work (try again).

nmblookup -B localhost '*'
nmblookup -B [your_ip_addr] '*'
nmblookup -B prova '*'  .. do this from prova itself
nmblookup -B prova '*'  .. but do this from other host.

Hope that will solve the problem.
