Thanks, that gave me an error "name_query failed to find name gomer".
Now I see on gomer that nmbd is not running. i'm using the fedora
[root at gomer samba]# rpm -qa|grep samba
and when i cat the samba start up script, nmbd is not found:
[root at gomer samba]# cat /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb |grep nmb
[root at gomer samba]#
when I start nbmd -D manually, then it prompts me for my username/passwd
to join the domain.
So, I will upgrade to the official samba.org rpms.
