Hi, the simple answer is dont use suse firewall,( iptables scripts are 
easy to google )
and study more chapters from Samba Browsing
I run many samba server under suse without any special problems
what you should now is taht you should not use a .local
dns domain on your internal nameserver , which is highly recommend
for a private network, in suse 9.1 this dns domains are resolved
by multicast for miracle reason, without having the magic to disable it.
