Hi, Anne,

Make sure that nmbd is running. I had a similar problem only to find out that 
I hadn't started all the things I needed. Other than this, the config file 
for both smbd and nmbd should be /etc/samba/smb.conf, or something similar. 
There you can configure on what interfaces should the servers listen, etc. 
There is a gui kcontrol module for that (Control Center -> Internet & 
Network -> Samba), but some things (especially user rights assignment) didn't 
work for me from there.

Blade hails you...
