Is samba set up as a winserver or PDC? Can you browse shares 
on the samba server from the ms boxes? Can you change the ip 
address of an ms box to the same subnet as the samba server 
and print successfully? Have you looked in the samba 
documentation in /usr/share/doc/samba-version?
More information on your setup would be helpful.
