I thought this should read:

	workgroup = PRODESAN

...in both smb.conf files.

But apparently it is OK as is and I can't seem to find any docs that support 
my thought, prodesan.com.br does meet the max 15 character limit and 
apparently .'s are an allowed character in NetBIOS names (although i 
personally never use them). It also seems, in general, that NetBIOS names are 
by convention capitalized in the smb.conf file.

Sorry to lead you down a false trail.
