Unhappy MDK 10 upgrade trashed SAMBA

I had a mental lapse last wednesday and very stupidly upgraded from MDK 9.2 (which was working great) to MDK10.

The upgrade overwrote ALL of my configuration files. I have now re-edited/ restored almost everything, but the original smb.conf that worked so well under MDK9.2/ SAMBA 2x no longer works under MDK10/ SAMBA 3. It seems fine on the Linux box, ie everything indicates SAMBA is working, but XP clients complain with that awful "Network path not found" message. I have disabled firewalls, reconfigured, reset, changed NICs. etc.

I have rewritten the smb.conf file, I have read and tried everything I have at hand, and then some. I have tried the most basic of smb.conf scripts that everyone says 'must work'. No joy. "Network path not found"

As I really need a file server, I really don't know what to do now, short of surrendering to Windoze XP -

I am on my knees here- does anyone know of a resource in _plain_ english that would let me troubleshoot this.
