You can set the dns domain name on a windows PC, You no doubt have set 
the domain name on the Samba server (just a thought, you have given the 
Samba server a fixed ipaddress, hostname and domain name, haven't you 
?). If your windows PCs have a different or no domain name, this could 
be a problem.
