        interfaces = eth1
        bind interfaces only = Yes
        obey pam restrictions = Yes
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n 
*Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
        syslog = 0
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 1000
        name resolve order = lmhosts  wins host bcast
        dns proxy = No
        wins support = Yes
        panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d

from some days it is not possible to open the workgroup list from 
Windows pcs.
