The system logs really don't say much that I can decipher about this
problem. I can get to it with the IP address from Windows or another
Linux box, but I can't access the shares from Windows via the IP address.
UPDATE: I have one lab machine on the same workgroup as the problem
Samba box. When I shut it down, suddenly everyone can see and connect
properly to the Samba server. I guess I have some type of browser conflict.
