Today I've changed all machines on my LAN to static addresses, not running DHCP server on the router any more. After this I could not mount the shared folder at the XP machine on my linux box. It said that I specified a wrong share name or something. I solved this by entering the IP address and the Host name of the XP machine that has a shared folder, into my resolv.conf. The thing is though, with DHCP i had to put IP and Hostname into the /etc/samba/lmhosts and NOT into /etc/hosts or /etc/resolv.conf. Without the DHCP server (static addressing), it is /etc/resolv.conf and NOT /etc/samba/lmhosts or /etc/hosts.
