I'm assuming this is the same issue I saw.

For some reason, Windows 98 and Windows XP computers (the only two 
tested) could no longer access the Fedora Core 1 SMB server a few 
days after the update from Red Hat 9.  I upgraded to samba-3.0.2-
7.FC1 immediately following the install, so I did not test with the 
orignial FC1 version.  The FC1 linux SMB server is set to be the WINS 
server for the network.  Changing dns proxy = yes from no "fixed" it. 
Every computer on this small network is in the /etc/hosts file.
Upgrading to samba-3.0.3-1.i386.rpm from Samba.org didn't make any 
difference (dns proxy = no means no access to the SMB server).

Is this still an issue with recent samba version / FC4?
Comment 3 John Thacker 2006-04-24 16:24:12 EDT
FC1 is now the responsibility of Fedora Legacy.  Since this is not
a security bug, and the reporter has not responded by a long time to
a request for updated info, closing.  If the problem occurs in
FC5, please feel free to reopen.
