Download the source to a directory in your $HOME, I download KDE stuff to /home/bern/Downloads/kde/apps, uncompress it, cd to the newly created source directory and build and install with the following three commands,
make install *this last one must be as root*
Then you will find a new samba module in the networking section of the kde control center and a new 'sharing' tab in the properties dialog when you right click on a directory in konqueror.
Is the Windoze box a member of the 'WENBERG' workgroup?
Is the samba box _really_ named Samba? Does WINS or DHCP know that? If Samba is _not_ acting as your WINS server, what is?
Now, for the suggestions. Don't allow 'root' as a user, it's a bad security practice.
Go to the text docs directory of Samba and read DIAGNOSIS.txt. Read it again, and do all the steps described - in order - and I'll bet you find the problem. That document hasn't changed much, if at all, in the last eight years and has _got_ to be the best way to t'shoot an installation.
