  i have a linux machine running samba with these settings:

 workgroup = ...
 netbios name = ...
 interfaces = lo eth1
 bind interfaces only = yes
 hosts allow = ....
 smb ports = 139

 local master = no
 os level = 35
 domain master = yes
 preferred master = yes
 wins support = yes
 dns proxy = no
 browseable = yes

 the wxp computers have dhcp enable, the dhcp server has these settings:

  option subnet-mask ...
  option broadcast-address ...
  option routers ...;
  option domain-name-servers ....
  option netbios-name-servers eth1_ip

 After I start the samba server, everything (in terms of network 
browsing) works fine for about 30 minutes, then
in my netowrk places there is only one computer, the linux server. 
Nothing in the logs. I found a similar problem
here: http://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2004-October/094102.html but 
no answer.
 My wxp machines were part of a windows NT domain, I dont know if that 

 any ideas?
