Passed all the steps 100%.  I can connect via smbclient to //starfish/share from
within a local ssh session on starfish *and* via smbclient from another linux
box on the network.  I still cannot open any shared folders from any windows
clients via \\starfish\share, only \\\share.  I have verified that name
resolution is working correctly.

This one has me baffled.  I appreciate all the help.
