centos 5.4 comes with   selinux ON by default as I recall. I wonder if that
has something to do with it?

So help us out here: what do you mean by 'nearest area' and 'far distance'?
By 'nearest area' do you mean  by access on the samba server itself? or from
some other computer nearby?
If form another computer what are the relative ip addresses of the server
versus the computer trying to access.
Same question for from far.

Also how do we know if you should change your smb.conf unless you tel us
what you have already..

Please tell us more...
