In my case, the Samba server is just a member server and not a domain
controller, and WINS is disabled. Our DNS is served from a Windows 2000
SP3 server, rather than BIND.

To the best of my knowledge, we aren't using WINS. I don't see a
particular need for it when DNS is available (but I may be mistaken -
perhaps this is the problem?). The Windows machines that I am using to
connect to the Samba machine are running Windows 2000 Server SP3 and
have static IPs.
