All 'backgrounding' means is that your box got tired of holding up the boot
process waiting for a response from your DHCP server. It is still looking
for one, it just isn't holding up the boot process any longer.

I would bet that if you booted to runlevel 3 (multi-user, no X) directly, your
network would probably work fine.

As far as your samba problems, it is impossible to help you without you
providing some info. I suggest you search the previous threads about Samba
to see if any of them answer your problems.
