- Can other clients connect to the server?

- Is this a NT4 domain or just a standalone server?

- Is the machine joined, if it's a domain member?

- Any registry changes done on W7? See 
for what is neccessary and what you should avoid.

- Is there a firewall on the RHEL box or between the server and the client?

- Does Samba listen on all ports it should? See 

- Is Samba listening on the right interfaces? (maybe it's just listening 
on localhost and not on your NIC or not on the right NIC if you have 
more than one).
