Try adding these 3 iptables rules:
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 137 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 138 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 139 -j ACCEPT

When you add rules like that to iptables, do they have to be added evrytime the machine starts up or are they automatically added to the default firewall rules? If they need to be added to the iptables rules, how do you permanetly add rules?

The either need to be added each time or saved using the "iptables-save" command.

So after I do the "iptables . . . ", I issue the iptables-save command and that will save the info into the iptables script?

Yes - It should save them so that the rules are in place after the next reboot.

dport means "destination port" I do believe.
