    might be beneficial to post the sticky you're refering to

    Have you added any samba users with smbpasswd -a?

    I'm assuming this is openSUSE version 11.1 we're talking about? Yes?

    Can you please give us the following diagnostic information. Open a
    console/terminal window and enter the commands below. Then copy/paste
    the full dialogue you get in the terminal window back here into a reply
    post:


    Code:
    --------------------
    cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
    --------------------

    that should telll us if you've configured samba to broadcast it's
    resources out to windows machines

    Code:
    --------------------
    cat /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 | egrep "FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_RELATED_EXT|FW_CONFIGURATIONS_EXT"
    --------------------

    that should tell us if you've configured the firewall to allow Samba
    through

    Code:
    --------------------
    cat /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2.d/services/samba-server | egrep "UDP=|BROADCAST="
    --------------------

    that should tell us if you fixed a bug in 11.1 firewall GUIs properly

    Complicated expressions -- might be easiest to use your mouse to copy
    them from the browser and use Edit --> Paste in the console window to
    enter them.

    Luck
