is your problem that you cannot "see"/ping your local lan while your
cisco-vpn is up? 
If yes then its a cisco-vpn-client/xp routing issue and nothing to do
with samba. Easy solution...close vpn when you want to work locally.
Sorry I can't suggest anything more practical.

When the VPN client is activated, all traffic from this machine is only forwarding network traffic over the VPN pipe. Obviously, this causes a problem with my Samba shares as they are no longer available. When the VPN client is shutdown all is well again.
