Network here one min gone the next

my workgroup was available one minute and gone the next (after a couple of changes). before, i could see my xp machines from suse but not my suse from the xp's. i tried to get an xp to join the suse domain but it said domain controller not available. i said forget the suse server idea, lemme just have the machines see each other without bothering with directories and such. i made some changes and now it says there aren't any workgroups available. all i want to do is share media between the machines.

so far, i've:
-allowed ports 137:139 in yast
-enabled smbd and nmbd at startup
(oh this reminds me, in swat it says that these aren't running, and if i click start or restart it refreshes the page and tells me that they're still not running)

i've been using swat. here's my smb.conf. any ideas?
