First things first, EVERY NAME must be unique. SO a server name of
Molectron and a domain of Molectron just WILL NOT WORK AT ALL.

Please change these to be different like this:

workgroup = MOLEDOM
netbios name = MOLECTRON

It'll get you a lot further.

Get back to us after you do that, if you have other problems.
