First and foremost, thanks!

I checked out the smb.log and there WERE 2 problems:
      1.  Undefined user (OK, I forgot to add the guest account)
      2.  The 'interfaces' parameter in the global section was incorrect.

Once the two issues were corrected, everything started working just fine.
One last question,  why was it working under whatever Samba version running
on FC3?

What does /var/log/messages, /var/log/samba/smbd.log say?
