The disappearing and appearing linux machine using Samba.
 
Why does my linux machine appear sometimes on Ms Network Neighborhood and somtimes it dose not?

I am using samba-2.2.5-10 RH8.0

Here is a copy from Samba Web Administration Tool , Viewpage of my smb.config:

Current Config

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from UNKNOWN (127.0.0.1)
# Date: 2004/04/06 10:03:17

# Global parameters
[global]
workgroup = HOME1
netbios name = PEN2
interfaces = 192.168.0.3
guest account = ftp
hosts allow = iwill

[lin_book]
comment = Linux bookmarks
path = /home/me/bookmarks
read only = No
guest ok = Yes

[ed]
comment = ed's homedir
path = /home/ed
read only = No
guest ok = Yes

Why does samba say FROM UNKOWN (127.0.01)

Here is a copy of my smbusers file:

# Unix_name = SMB_name1 SMB_name2 ...
root = administrator admin
nobody = guest pcguest smbguest


After adding users and group do I need to stop and restart anything??

Here is copy of ifconfig to show I have a working nic "
