[Samba] Can't browse network using nautilus

I'n using the nautilus file browser in a GNOME desktop environment on a  
FC2 system.

If I enter smb:/// in the location bar in nautilus I can see the  
network but whenever I try to look at the shares on a computer I get a  
message saying that I do not have permissions to view the contents.

I looked in the archives and found a thread on a similar problem. This  
thread mentioned that the gnome-vfs-extras rpm had been depreciated and  
should be removed. This solved the problem for that person but didn't  
work for me (I did have that rpm installed snd removed it). Here are  
the rpms that I have installed:


In looking at an ethereal trace I see some NBNS messages folloed by 3  
TCP messages and 2 SMB Netgotiate Protcol Request/Response, all of  
which look OK.

Then comes a "session setup andx request, NTLMSSP_NEGOTIATE" message.  
In this message is a "Security Blob" section and part of this is  
"Calling workstation domain". This is set to WORKGROUP which is wrong  
for me and does not match what I have set in my smb.conf file. There is  
also a "session setup andx request, NTLMSSP_AUTH message that has the  
same problem. My user name and machine name are set correctly but the  
domain is wrong.

So it would appear that Nautilus is not reading my smb.conf file.
Any pointers on how to proceed from here will be appreciated.
