Cant access windows shares from SuSe 9.1pro Samba

Im trying to set-up SuSe 9.1 pro to become a domain controller and to allow windows XP clients to log onto the server for a number of services. (e.g. print sharing, file sharing, Routing for an ADSL connection) etc etc etc..

Iv set-up the configuration of the network card in the SuSe machine and this is connected to my router..Now on the windows machine's i can see the Samba server but i cannot gain internet access and Network access from the SuSe machine...

Im also having trouble configuring the workgroup/Domain settings.. What am i doing wrong??

Please help a nOOb

I'm not very skilled in samba thing, but the internet access I can tell you: it isn't made through samba. You can let winxp's access internet by enabling "IP forward" in yast2. You don't even need to have samba installed and configured to share a connection.
Just open yast2, go to network devices, eth0 (if it is correct) and enable "IP forward".
