make sure the nmbd daemon is runnig:
service nmb status

if not start it:
chkconfig nmb on
service nmb start

if the problem still persist make sure you have not installed a firewall that
blocks ports 137,138 udp or broadcast udp traffic

if still it does not work please provide a network trace showing the problme,
or, at least the nmbd log files using log level 10

Comment 3 The Source 2007-06-22 10:43:50 UTC
Launching nmbd solved the problem. I just didn't know that you have made smbd
and nmbd launchers in different scripts. In FC6 everything could be launched
with /etc/init.d/smb
