I've got Samba 3.0 on a Linux FC2 machine, and Windows XP on another machine.

When trying to access from Windows to Linux through 'fooworkgroup', I
get this error message:
"foogroup is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out
if you have access permissions. The list of servers for this workgroup
is currently not available."

The '/etc/samba/smb.conf' on the Linux FC machine is:
        workgroup = foogroup
        netbios name = pc01
        server string = Samba Server at PC01
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        dns proxy = No
        hosts allow = 192.168.2.
        security = user

        comment = All Printers
 	path = /var/spool/samba
        printable = Yes
        browseable = No

        comment = shared
        path = /home/john/shared
        read only = No
        public = Yes

   comment = Temporary file space
   path = /tmp
   read only = no
   public = yes

It worked ok some weeks ago, but I reinstalled Windows XP and now it doesn't.

Any suggestion?
