Kernal upgrade - need IP now

HI everyone.

Can the answer here by in Samba.conf? Have the settings changed with the latest updates?

I'm running Red Hat 9.0 on my Dell Latitude D600, and only recently got the new RHN certificates working properly, so over the holiday break I finally downloaded all of the recent Red Hat RPMs. Ever since doing so I notice that I can't mount SMB shares on my subnet without including the server's specific IP number in the mounting shell script. The sever name used to be sufficient. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a file I can change to get things back the way they were? It wouldn't be a problem except that my Linksys router gives a different IP depending on which of my home computers signs on first.

Disregard the above - the problem was having security set to "high" from "medium" - which prevents the client from receiving an answer to its broadcast asking for server names on the subnet.
